Jose was born in Mexico City and grew up in Maryland, moving to North Carolina in his teen years. It was during this drastic change from city life in Maryland that he developed a love for the outdoors and was one of the reasons he was inspired to work at EarthOptics. He wanted to spend time in this outdoor type of environment and expand his knowledge in the agricultural and precision ag field. He graduated from Rosewood High School in Goldsboro, NC in 2013 and has future plans to continue his education. Jose enjoys hitting some trails on his four wheeler, which is an essential skill in the EarthOptics Field Operations Team! In his free time Jose also enjoys kayaking, fishing and spending time with friends and family.
