Born in Reynosa, Tamaulipas, México in 1950, and graduated as Chemical Engineer of the Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León. In 1971. Complete studies in Methodology of Science at the Facultad de Filosofía y Letras of the same University. 

From 1971 to 1994, taught in several Universitary level Institutions, like: Instituto Tecnológico Regional de Ciudad Madero, No.7, Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León, Facultad de Ciencias Químicas & Escuela Normal del Estado de Nuevo León, Escuela de Graduados.

In the previous mentioned Institutions the classes taught were: Physics, Physical-Chemistry, Reactors Design, Applied Mathematics & Methodology of Science. Currently working in the ceramic raw materials company in Monterrey Nuevo Leon, and residing here since 1966.  

Married since 1972 to a wonderful woman, Luz María, my love and best friend.

We have a son Carlos Eduardo, Civil Engineer, married to María Idalia, and a daughter, Claudia Patricia, actress, graduated by the Universidad de Veracruz, married to Edén.

Carlos and María Idalia have a pretty little daughter (and my first granddaughter), Natalia, born in November 2000 and a handsome little son, Miguel, born in January 2003, and our first grandson.

Claudia and Edén gave us also a great happiness with our second granddaughter, Gabriela, born in February 20, 2002.

Other interests or hobbies are : 

  • Cactuses
  • The Game of Life
  • A reform of the Spanish Alphabet ( this society currently boast of one member… )
  • Prime Hunting
  • Prime curios (I send regular submissions to: 1 & 2)
  • and...puzzles, posting & solving!... (See 1)

A special, old, large and shared with my parents hobby (should I call it this way?) is music, as necessary to me as air. I practiced trumpet until my thirties, and continue playing guitar at every family or friends party. (Thanks Dad for all this wonderful musical years at home at  your side).

Started hunting primes in 1996. The majority of them are currently posted on Chris Caldwell or Rudolph Ondrejka databases. For the Chris Caldwell's database my codes are "CR", "gr" & "nr" 

My Golden Year hunting primes was 1997. At the end of that year - and using the then recently launched (July 1997?) code Proth from the great Yves Gallot - I reached to the Caldwell's Top Ten Lists of Primes in the General  and Twins categories, respectively, with my primes 9183*2^262112+1 (6th place) and 843753*2^22222± 1 (2nd place).

See a scanned-at-home memory of these unforgettable (for me) Top Ten Pages: 1 , 2 (dated 20/01/98)

The first prime in particular meant a lot for us (Gallot and me) in those very moments because for the first time the Proth reached to the 1st place of the List of non-Mersenne primes (typically in hands of J. Young a member of the Cray Research Co. team, and before by the team named the Amdahl Six) producing a prime gotten by a solitaire hunter using a PC (as pointed out Gallot).
