Michael Steven Perez is recently retired from four decades of hard work, dedicated service, and years of stressful giving.  He currently spends his time learning to live without a schedule and thoroughly enjoying it. 


Michael is a native Californian and proud father of two grown sons, Justin and Jonathan.  He received a BA in Management from the University of Redlands and an MBA from Pepperdine University.  Michael also taught as an adjunct professor at the University of La Verne at the graduate level in the areas of business and healthcare and other colleges for 13 years.

Professionally, for the past 40 years, he’s been a manager and executive in both the Private and Public Sector.  His areas of corporate and governmental expertise include business management, finance, operations, consulting, policy, and marketing.  Additionally, he is educated, trained, and has extensive experience in healthcare delivery systems, managed care management, hospital and clinical service delivery, and associated federal, state, and county related operational authorities.

Michael’s personal interests have led him to become a writer of fiction.  He’s published his first novel “The House of Aragon,” based upon the Mexican-American Mafia (La Eme).  In an effort to better understand his Hispano and Jewish (Sephardi) roots, Michael has researched, written, and is currently releasing a Family History, “The de Riberas” through Somos Primos in monthly installments on a chapter-by-chapter basis.

Over the years Michael has assisted Somos Primos in various outreach efforts to educate the community at large about the contributions made by the Hispanics on behalf of the United States of America.  One such effort was assisting them to establish the Hispanic American Heroes Series.  Its first endeavor was the “Gálvez Gala” which was held on October 12, 2003 at the City of Long Beach, California.

Few knew of Bernardo de Gálvez y Madrid, Viscount of Galveston and Count of Gálvez (Macharaviaya, Málaga, Spain July 23, 1746-November 30, 1786).

The brilliant 30-year old Spanish General helped America win the Revolutionary War.  He was also a Spanish military leader and colonial administrator who served as colonial governor of Louisiana and Cuba, and later as Viceroy of New Spain.

At this time, he’s evaluating how to help his community by offering his education, experience, knowledge, and expertise in those areas where he will be value added.  He feels that pro bono work in the non-profit arena would best suit his need to give back and assist those organizations in need of his specific expertise.
