What music dominates your playlists?

I switch back and forth between indie and alternative music in both Spanish and English, sometimes I find myself listening to Brazilian reggae.

What could you eat every single day and never get tired of it?

Arepas are a part of my weekly food routine, and I still haven’t gotten tired of them.  It helps that you can combine them with everything and anything and eat them at any time of the day!

What’s on the top of your bucket list?

Traveling and go rock-climbing all over the world.

When you’re not busy making chemistry for our clients, what do you enjoy doing in your free time?

Since Climbing has become a big part of my lifestyle, I have to train to stay in shape and take my mind off things. I love spending time in my home & art studio in Logan Square and unwind with some art making.
