Although Emilio is originally from Boston, he is now a 20 year resident of San Diego. Emilio worked for many years in the financial and sales industries, but felt that he didn't receive the rewards that he gains from working with man's best friend on a daily basis.

Emilio is a former Marine and college athlete, as well as an avid dog lover, and he was immediately drawn to training and working with pets and their owners. helping to improve their relationships. Emilio has spent the majority of his time helping people in San Diego, in these very circumstances. He has also worked with several rescue organizations, helping to rehabilitate many pups throughout San Diego County. "It's a great feeling knowing I am helping people shape the pet they always wanted," he said.

As Emilio has grown into his position, he is finding his role in Lorenzo’s Dog Training Team evolving as well. He is growing his presence in San Diego by building and mentoring his team, as a Team Coordinator. He went on to say, “This gives me the opportunity to provide and pass on to other trainers what I received from Lorenzo and my fellow trainers. Plus the impact on San Diego will be huge. This will allow us to reach more families and their dogs throughout the county and that’s the bottom line. Helping as many families, dogs, and individuals grow in this company is my mission”.

Whenever he's not training dogs or helping people, Emilio spends his time with his family, which includes his beautiful wife Trina, and his two Rottweilers, Sofia and Champ, and Rocco, a pit bull mix.
