Luis, known better by friends as Luigi, is starting his senior year at NMSU as a Journalism/Communications Major with a Minor in Spanish. Born in Panama City, Panama and adopted at the age of 2, Luigi says New Mexico has always been his home. He has lived in Las Cruces for most of his life and graduated from Las Cruces High School in 2012. During his sophomore year of college Luigi travelled out of state to Brooklyn College CUNY and played soccer there.  Luigi is also a Student Campus Minster for the Newman Center at NMSU, a member of News 22, and an active brother of Kappa Sigma Fraternity (ΚΣ). Luigi contributes three years of local DJ experience under the stage name DJ CYKLOID and is the official DJ of the Las Cruces Kings Semi-Pro Football team and is a featured DJ with PartyTenders Inc. He has performed in venues and events across the Las Cruces, El Paso, and Albuquerque area. He has also previously worked at KRUX 91.5 FM (2015-2016) as a DJ, a Promotions Director, and Underwriting Manager of the station. Though school is his focus, if it were to happen, he would definitely hop on the opportunity to go Pro. Following graduation from NMSU Luigi plans on either pursuing a Master’s Degree, working for a news agency, or joining the Navy as an Officer. In his free time he loves to be actively involved in his community, spending time with his family and dog, and going out with friends.
