Contrary to popular belief, I’m Mexican, not Japanese/Korean/Chinese even though my name might deceive you. *A shout-out to all my Japanese/Korean/Chinese brothers though 😉

If you want to know stuff about me, let’s see I am 33 years old, I was born in Mexico City but now I live in Los Angeles, CA. L.A. has been home for the last 10 years.

My most favorite thing in the world is chocolate followed closely by taking pictures. So I try to combine both activities as much as possible.

I like to run (I completed my fifth marathon on Oct 17, 10 and I’m currently training for my sixth) so by run… I mean really running… I’m hoping to keep getting better at it and one day become an ultra-marathoner. (Shout-out to Dean Karnazes.)

Aside from chocolate, running and taking pictures, I heart Robbie Williams, Vanessa Williams, my bff’s, my niece Sonia and picnics at the beach. My heroes are my mom and my brother.

    What a coincidence! My favorite thing is chocolate, as well, followed closely by knitting. And I do my best to ALWAYS combine the two. I’ll leave the lovely picture-taking to you, sir. And congrats on the third marathon. I’ll be sticking with yoga, I’m afraid, but I am uber impressed with your mad running skills.

    Hi. Your photo album of the San Francisco Marathon (both parts) is outstanding. I was in the same corral as you and didn’t finish too far ahead even without me having a sprained ankle to deal with. By far the best photo shoot of a marathon I’ve ever seen and your commentary under the photos is excellent. Thanks for taking the time to shoot the photos on the course.

    And Ghiradelli’s chocolate rocks!

    Dude… love your SFM photos and captions. You are hilarious! Thanks so much for sharing. I am reliving the experience, in your eyes.
