I'm a first gen Puerto Rican - American. Born in Philadelphia. Raised in a not so good part of town and left at the age of 18 to find something different and better myself. I ended up in Carson City, NV where I built and ran a Non-Profit Indoor Skate Park for youth for two years. I then moved on to working in the bike industry for a while and moved up the hill to Lake Tahoe where I lived as a "Ski bum" enjoying the mountain life and learning from nature. Something was telling me that I needed to move and experience new things so I began a new journey and ended up here in San Francisco. Sold my vehicle and had a friend drop me off at a hostel with a bag of clothes on my back and my bike. Its been 4 years now and San Francisco has become home to me.
