Edwin Arroyave’s Childhood
Edwin Arroyave was born on April 19, 1977, in Bogotá, Colombia. His family moved to the United States for work shortly after his birth.
When he was six years old, Edwin and his older sister, Adriana, moved to Los Angeles for a better opportunity.
Edwin was very excited to move to the U.S. He grew up watching a lot of Hollywood movies in Colombia, and it was a dream come true for him and his family. However, that dream didn’t last very long.
Two weeks after he moved, law enforcement officials raided their house to arrest his father and mother. At that time, they were living in Glendora, California. He admitted in an interview, his father was involved in drug trafficking.
At a very young age, Edwin was under a lot of pressure to take financial responsibility for his family and to become the “man of the house.” So, at the age of 15, he started looking for a job while he attended high school at Huntington Park.
His quest for work landed him a job as a telemarketer at a long-distance company. While working there, Edwin broke every one of the firm’s sales records.
Edwin’s employer noticed his excellent marketing skills. So, he ended up becoming a national trainer and supervisor of over 60 people.
The dashing Colombia native never went to college. Instead of learning about business in the classroom, he learned the ins and outs of the business world by actually working with successful people.
Edwin Arroyave’s Family Life
Edwin Arroyave’s parents were arrested because of suspicion of drug trafficking. His mother was acquitted after three months, but his father wasn’t released until eight months later. However, things didn’t get better for them as they would get raided every 15 months.
When Edwin was 10 years old, officials checked his house for the last time and found his dad guilty and put him in prison for 10 years. It was a big shock to Edwin, as he had always admired his father and looked up to him.

Besides having an older sister, Edwin also has a younger brother and a younger sister. And his family had a lot of financial troubles.
At one point in his life, his family of five had to live in a single bedroom because they were broke. That’s when Edwin decided to take responsibility to change things for him and his family.

10 years ago today I met this boy @tedwinator. I assumed after one crazy night after a nightclub meeting we would never meet again. This is us then and throughout the last 10 years…We have become the very best of friends, traveled the world, built huge businesses, created a beautiful family and life that I am beyond proud of. We also learned what it’s like to fight for each other. Life is not perfect. Marriage is not perfect, but, knowing you found the person that you are willing to fight for for the rest of your life when hard things happen makes my heart feel full. Thank you for being my person @tedwinator, I love you. We did it baby. 10 years and a lifetime to go. #10yearanniversary #iamaprofessionalnagger #heisalwayslate #thisisus #bladeandterri
She said that she woke up next to some guy who she thought was named was Edmund. (Well, it’s close enough!)
Teddi Mellencamp and Edwin Arroyave dated before tying the knot in 2011 in Paris. The couple now have two kids together—Slate Arroyave, 6, and Cruz Arroyave, 4. Isabella “Bella” Arroyave, 10, is Edwin’s daughter, from his previous marriage.
What Does Edwin Arroyave Do for a Living?
Edwin works very hard. Not only did he want to achieve his dream of making a $100,000, but he was also afraid to lose his job.
At the age of 18, Edwin started earning $800.00 a week and oversaw 36 people. Because of his hard work, he became the right-hand of the VP of sales for that company.
When Edwin was 21 years old, his VP had an idea and proposal for him. He told Edwin that he had resigned and was planning to start an alarm company and wanted his help to build it up.
In 1994, Edwin worked as a sales manager at L.D. Services Inc. Then, five years later, he and his partner started a security business, Nee Security Inc., with operations that expanded as far as Puerto Rico.
Although the company was very successful, Edwin and his partner decided to part ways and closed the firm in 2002. From 2002 to 2004, he was president of E & E Security.

In 2004, Edwin started his own firm called Skyline Security Management and became its CEO. His company earned recognition in the industry within a few years.
The firm is located in Downey, California, and it maintains and monitors security system devices such as burglar and fire alarms.
Edwin spoke about what motivated him to get into the security industry and said, “I love the money part of it. But I also saw the demand for it. Growing up in Huntington Park, I saw many burglaries, and I just felt good about being able to do something. I honestly felt like I was protecting clients and helping them avoid a burglary from happening.”
Skyline Security System is licensed and operates in 30 states across the nation.
