Gonzalo was born and raised in Bronx NY. He has graduated from Fordham University with a B.S in Health Science. Gonzalo is an Iraq War Veteran and served as a United States Marine Corps Sergeant for 8 years. The transition coming out of the Marine Corps to home life was difficult and this struggle made him realize his desire to help fellow Veterans so they don’t have to face the hardship he did. This is the purpose for starting Devil Dog USA Inc. Now Gonzalo has reached a point where he believes that the next step to truly improve the many situations facing Veterans and the general community is by running for New York City Council District 15.
