Angel Rodriguez-Ricardo is a Cuban-American author, IT professional, and former U.S. Army serviceman. Born in Holguin, Cuba, in 1977, he emigrated to the United States in 1998, embarking on a life-changing journey. His service in the U.S. Army, including a deployment to Iraq, instilled in him a deep sense of resilience and a broad perspective on life.

Upon returning from service, Angel pursued his passion for knowledge, earning an Associate in Arts Degree in Physics. His commitment to continual learning and problem-solving has been pivotal in his career in the IT industry since 2008.

The inspiration for his debut children’s book, “Money’s Magical Adventures: A Tale of Tails and Dollars,” came from his rescued black Labrador, Money. The book merges Angel’s love for his dog and his mission to educate children about money management.
