I was born in Santiago, Chile but have lived most of my life in Edmonton, Canada. I speak and read both English and Spanish. (The latter not as fluent as I'd like). Proud father of a couple of furry rascals. My two dogs, Shadow and Lola, always put a smile on my face. Engaged to Cindy Castaneda, whom keeps me grounded and is the brains of our operation. :p We love to travel and learn about new places and cultures. We love fine wine, micro brews and trying out new cuisine and ethnic dishes.
