I was born in Fort Polk Louisiana, however, most of my family is from the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. I have lived in Pennsylvania for the past 27 years. Before moving to Pennsylvania, I lived in seven different countries, because my father was in the U.S. Army. In my spare time, I enjoy doing the following things: hiking, mountain biking, and kayaking. My wife and I also like to visit National Parks.
