Who am I? Barcelona

I am very glad to be here at the University of Florida.

I feel lucky to have been born and raised in St. Petersburg, Florida. It's a wonderful place, with beaches, parks, and baseball, despite often being overshadowed by its more boisterous neighbor – Tampa.

I belong to a family of five, son of an interior decorator and an industrial engineer, with two younger sisters that I wish lived a little closer to Gainesville. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of South Florida, where I studied American history and cultural anthropology. I came to the University of Florida because it afforded me the opportunity to attend a highly regarded Journalism program as well as study at the same school as my fiancee, who is currently enrolled in UF's Doctor of Physical Therapy program.
