I left for college for 4 years, but I made sure to get back to Texas as fast as I could!Where did you attend High School?I am proud to say I am a member of the first ever graduating class of Cinco Ranch High School in Katy, Texas. It was a great experience getting to start a school from scratch and to see that some of the traditions that we began back then are still alive today, is pretty cool to see.Where is your hometown?I was born in Chicago, Illinois and lived there for eight years. However, I tell people I grew up in Houston. So, you can say I have two hometowns and both are great cities!Do you have any pets?No pets, but I once had two fish named Fred and Wilma. I also had a lizard, yes a lizard. He was a class pet that was given to me back in 4th grade. Awesome stuff.What is something you wouldn leave the house without?I would never leave the house without my cell phone. Oh, and a wallet always helps.What is your favorite part of working in television news?I get paid to watch and talk about sports and for a gut, I don think it gets any better than that. I love telling the stories “outside the lines.” There are so many sports stories that don have to do with X and O in our great city. I want to get all of them out to the public.If you could trade lives with someone for a day, who would that be?No one. I am blessed with all that I have in my life and I don think anyone else can compare. Although, being Michael Jordan back when he ruled the NBA would be outstanding.What are your 3 favorite films?Independence Day, Major League and The Dark Knight.What are your favorite sports teams?I am a die hard fan of the Chicago White Sox jerseys. I know, being in Houston, I shouldn say those things, but the Sox, have been my team of choice since I was a baby (I have the picture to prove it!) I am also a big fan of the Chicago Bulls and the Chicago Bears. Do you sense a theme here? With all that being said, I always cheer for the Astros jerseys, Texans and Rockets although that can be frustrating some times!What are your favorite foods?Being of Cuban descent, any Cuban food will work for me. My mom makes the best flan in the world and I dare anyone to try and beat it. I would be willing to eat it all just to be sure my mom is still the best. I am that dedicated!
