I am a latino recreational roller and ice hockey goalie. It's really a full-time hobby, as I've become a total gearhead and continually rip apart and re-sew my gear.

Growing up in the Hershey, PA area, I became an Avs fan when the Bears were their farm team and my interest in hockey was growing (despite the local coverage, I never cared for any of the Philadelphia area sports teams.)

I lived in Pittsburgh for 8 years (4 of them as a Pitt student) and also follow Pittsburgh area sports teams due to my immersion in the black and gold city.

I also lived in Tampa, FL, where I attended graduate school and currently live in Arlington, VA. I have adopted the Washington Redskins as my "hometown" football team, being in the Washington, DC metro area.
