Rafael E. “Lalo” Galvan Aviña

Rafael E. “Lalo” Galvan Aviña

Rafael’s childhood was extraordinary. Spent exploring the urban hillsides around his family’s home in Tijuana, then traversing the ridges surrounding his ancestor’s historic rancho (Rancho San Gregorio), and spending his summers with the first Earth Expeditions in Baja.  As a young adult, Rafael honed his talents and passion into a practice of architecture and civil engineering. Despite successes in his field, Rafael continues to explore, document, and reveal the natural wonders of Baja California with VSI’s participants every summer.
