Arnoldo moved from Costa Rica to the United States in 1963, to live as an exchange student with a family in California. After college, he ran a non-profit council of Latino agencies that supported and promoted social service agencies as safety networks for the community. Today, he works for the DC Public School System, implementing language access services and helping parents better understand the educations system. He says that community service is his vocation and that almost nothing makes him happier than watching students succeed. On the weekends, Arnoldo loves eating lunch in Mount Pleasant and going hiking in Rock Creek Park. He also loves to cook, play and watch soccer, and go to jazz concerts with his three children, wife, and mother-in-law.
