I am married to the love of my life, Pilar Fernandez, who is an elementary school principal and lover of animals, except for spiders. We recently said good-bye to our beloved English Bulldog Lucy, a member of our family for nearly 12 years, and we still miss her very much. We chose Miami Lakes to grow our family, and are looking forward to spending the rest of our lives here, God willing.

I love to eat, I enjoy trying new foods and cooking at home. I am a pescatarian, and have been so for almost 8 years. When I am not cooking at home, I enjoy eating out, or ordering delivery from Dr. Limon, Tratorria Pampered Chef, Shulas 2, or Silver Spoon.
A few years ago, I created a goal for myself to visit all 50 states in the U.S. , before turning 50, I am catching up with 33 states visited so far. We went to Spain for our honeymoon, and are eager to return, we also make a yearly trip to Vero Beach around the 4th of July, and a bi-annual trip to a cabin in the mountains in North Carolina. When I travel, I like to visit sites that are historically significant, Washington DC and Boston are my two favorite U.S. cities to visit.
I root for the home team, even when they aren't playing well, I am loyal, and I haven't found a sport that I didn't enjoy watching. I played football in high school, volleyball and soccer in middle school, and baseball as a little boy. I am very competitive, but always play by the rules. In my adult life I occasionally enjoy a good game of kickball or a round of Golf at Shulas, particularly when it is supports charity.
I enjoy a wide variety of musical genres, from classical, to pop, spanish, etc. I only dislike really heavy metal, everything else is worth a listen. I played the Alto Sax a little in middle-school band, but I confess I could use way more practice than I have time for.
I love to read, and try to chew through at-least a book per month, my current nightstand reader is the Checkered Butterfly, written by my friend George Ox, check it out.
I am a Roman-Catholic, I drive a Mini-Van, I have an extensive Lego Collection, I am an elite Monopoly player, and, I love Miami Lakes.
