I grew up in Jacksonville, FL as the quietest kid in a giant Cuban and Puerto Rican family. I grew up surrounded by love and support, and I will always be thankful for that. For years I obsessed over shows like Mobile Suit Gundam, Dragon Ball Z, and Power Rangers. I built model kits, board games, and villain of the week designs. Once I got old enough to grasp Strategy games, I never looked back. Games like Crusader Kings, Black and White, and Rome: Total War shaped how I perceived games as a device for telling near infinite but deeply personal stories.
All that and more were what shaped me into the Game Designer I am now.
