About Luis

I was born in Caracas, Venezuela. Moved to the US after college. My career has centered around digital media product and business development.

I am married to Michelle, the most beautiful woman I know. We have two amazing kids: Luna and Luka.

I currently work in the best entertainment media college in the world: Full Sail University as Vice President of Full Sail Online.

When Manny told me about Tu Diabetes, I got really excited and asked him if I could be a volunteer. Thanks god, he accepted. I am not a diabetic myself, but as a parent and American, I am deeply worried about this condition that affect so many.

By the numbers

Viewing the interview in Channel 22 Los Angeles where Jose Ronstadt interviews Dr. Cesar Rey, I was amazed by some of the statistics.



According to Dr. Rey the statistics place Diabetes as the disease that is growing at the fastest rate in the US.



Every year 800,000 people is diagnosed in the US; 1 million in Canada; and 2 million in India. That's almost 4 million people in just those three countries. It's like a new country with only diabetics is born every year.… Continue

Posted on August 8, 2007 at 12:35pm 2 Comments

So today is my official one-month anniversary as a volunteer for Tu Diabetes.



It's been an amazing month and it's hard to believe that it has only been one month. A lot has happened.



First and most importantly I have met incredible people. Secondly, I have learned sooo much from all of you. Thirdly, amazingly enough, the excitement about building this community has taken stress away from my job and it has made me appreciate and enjoy my family a lot more. What else could I… Continue

Diabetes getting closer

As you know, I'm one of those members of TuDiabetes that is actually not a diabetic. I became aware of diabetes through my friend Manny and since he started this community I have felt compelled to help any way I can. As consequence I have learned so much from you.



Last week, my mom told that my nana's cardiologist wanted her to shoot 8 units of insulin everyday, I told my mom: "Mom, she needs to go see her Endocrinologist right away"… Continue

I am happy that you are reading this and that you are a member of the growing TuDiabetes family.
Since the community was formed back in early 2007, lots of things have changed. Also since then, lots of new members have joined: we're now nearly 11,300 members. So, new members and new features means it never hurts to refresh how things work around the community.

If you haven't read it, I invite you to take a few minutes to go through our New Member Guide. If you have been a member for a while but have let a little dust accumulate on your TuDiabetes account, you will find it very useful.

If you don't find answers to a question you may have, never hesitate to ask. Click on the Contact Us link at the bottom of any page and one of the members of our Admin team (you can see their faces on the bottom right side of any page) will get back to you shortly.
