  1. I am from Jamaica, Queens, New York.
  2. I listen more than I speak.
  3. I was obsessed with the Power Rangers as a kid. When I was about 9 or 10, I searched the yellow pages for Fox 5’s number. I called. A security guard answered the phone. I asked her if she could help me become the next kid power ranger – I drew my costumes, my zord, I had a whole story line planned out.
  4. Growing up I wanted to be a professional baseball player. If I stuck with it I could’ve definitely made the minor leagues.
  5. I read The Alchemist by Paulo Cohelo once a year.
