Edgar Licea was born in Southern California where he spent his early years in Pacoima. He graduated with a Bachelor's in Business Administration from the University of Nevada Las Vegas. During Edgar's college education he took part in numerous non-profit, political and outreach organizations. In 2014 he was a Nevada state delegate for the Libertarian Party.
Opportunity came as he saw that the Hispanic community could benefit from a greater understanding of economics and principles of free markets. This ultimately led to the co-creation of a Las Vegas based non-profit called SoloUSA. In early 2015 he was hired by The LIBRE Initiative as part of their field team. Edgar now works in Arlington, Virginia as a Data Administrator.
