Vice President of External Affairs
Diego is a Principal Civil Engineer with Walt Disney Imagineering.
He is a proud Ecuadorian-American from Quito, first generation graduate from UC Berkeley and USC. He
has domestic and international experience in the design and construction of several major infrastructure
projects. While his career path has taken him from United Arab Emirates to China, Diego maintains a
resolve to find his way back to the roots from which he came – one engineering problem at a time.
His Imagineering career started with Cars Land at Disney’s California Adventure, then evolved into
Shanghai Disney Resort in China, and has once again evolved into EPCOT at Walt Disney World.
Diego currently lives in Los Angeles, considers his family his biggest source of strength, and is a huge
advocate for youth development in the Latinx community. In his free time, he obsesses over LAFC, the
best tacos in LA, and the general meaning of life.
