What music dominates your playlists?

I switch back and forth between alternative music in Spanish and English, sometimes even french and Brazilian reggae.

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

Sushi is everyone’s favorite, it’s also mine. But since I discovered arepas are being sold at a grocery store by me I have one everyday, it’s also a plus that they go with everything and at any time of the day!

What’s on the top of your bucket list?

Go climbing all over the world. Most proximate, Spain.

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

Since Climbing is on top of my bucket list, I have to train! so Climbing takes over most of my free time, but I also love going to my art studio in Logan Square and unwind with some art making.
