I’ve become quite the grill master over the years 🔥

The final product, a fresh and beautiful plate


If you were a cocktail, what would you be and why?

I would be a bottle of beer, easy, simple, and straight to the point


What do you do for fun?

Work events, play the drums, surf, ride dirt bikes, go to concerts and weekend getaways exploring California


What else do you want our readers to know about you?

I love having family and friends visit me from my home in Puerto Rico and showing them the beauty of California, especially my son Diego who's 9 years old
