    The mission of the Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History is to present the story of the cultural crossroads of the the New World. With a unique confluence of natural history, science, people, and environments, the South Texas area has served as a stage for the ongoing discovery of the Americas. Through innovative programs in history, culture, and science, the Museum is committed to enlarging a shared understanding of our history and heritage, as well as the impact and importance of science to our lives. By telling this story, the Museum will inspire a thirst for knowledge, context, and understanding.

    Meet Our Event Curator

    Imagine a day filled with brilliant speakers, thought-provoking videos, and mind-blowing conversations. This TEDx event is a local grassroots initiative led by volunteers, created in the spirit of TED's overall mission.
    I am the founder of HRMG, a digital marketing company from South Texas with over ten years of experience and 70+ clients served across the country. As of 2022, I have taken a leadership position as President of the board of directors for PRIDE Corpus Christi. Since 2017, I co-founded a co-working space, short film production studio, and life safety auditing firm. As an entrepreneur, I am a passionate developer of minds that leads by example with a hands-on approach. I have invested my time, resources, and patience in creating a pocket of prosperity for those with similar passions as my own. I believe we earn success with hard work and that an idea, a concept, or a masterpiece is only as powerful as the message it can carry. Our audacity to think that we can is what enables our visions to succeed.
