Managers


Ruben Rodriguez

Ruben Rodriguez

Manager of CASES Campaign Partner Project Team

This is Ruben’s second year with Project by Project as he transitioned from Operations to become the Project Manager for the CASES Campaign Partner. Ruben graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara with a degree in Business Economics and a minor in Sports Management. From his upbringing in a tight-knit Catholic family, Ruben had always wanted to serve the community and became involved in service projects during his high school years. Aside from his current accounting job in retail, he occasionally volunteers for LA on Cloud9, a nonprofit volunteer-run organization focusing on helping out the homeless and their pets. He also serves as a board member for Ole LA: The UCSB Young Alumni Group of Los Angeles. During his free time, Ruben watches countless baseball games on TV and at a stadium but is still agonizing over last year’s World Series Game 7 crushing loss for the Dodgers against the Astros. To cope with the heartbreak, at least Ruben’s two favorite condiments, sriracha and guacamole, still exist in the world.

I grew up in a small town called Oak Harbor in Washington where I spent most of my time at the beach. After high school I moved down to Austin, TX to attend school at the University of Texas and studied Computer Science.
