Ranch roots. Urban wings. Angelo was raised on his family’s fourth generation cattle ranch in the beautiful Sierra Valley, CA. Being surrounded by a tight knit family and rural agricultural community, Angelo experienced firsthand the importance of loving and caring for one’s neighbor and an honest hard day’s work. Values that he still cherishes today.
After attending UC Berkeley, Angelo’s urban wings took him to Washington, DC where he served the residents of California for nearly six years as a top aide in the Office of U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein, before returning back to the west coast as the Director of Development for the Sierra Business Council where he was actively involved in providing support to sustainable small businesses and securing funding to implement economic development projects in rural Sierra Nevada communities.
A cultural bridge builder, Angelo is passionate and committed to uniting the next generation of rural and urban communities up and down the state of California through creative and collaborative entrepreneurial endeavors.
As a connector, Angelo currently works at FedEx as a Sales Account Executive – Market Development, helping small business owners deliver their goods across the United States and to a global market of over 220 countries.
