I usually don't like to share much about myself on the Internet, so I was planning to go the cynical, sarcastic route, but you are a fine bunch of people, so here's the real thing.
I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, specifically in the city of Ponce. It is the second biggest city in the island, located in the South coast. However, 8.5 years ago, I decided to get married and moved to the capital (San Juan) where I've been living since. And yes, I'm still happily married... or married at least
I have four older brothers, and 3 younger half-siblings. My parents divorced when I was 5, which I can say deeply affected me long-term emotionally. I hated my father for most of my teenage years, and it wasn't until I met my now-wife that I decided to mend things. Even though we aren't best friends, I can say it was one of the best decisions I've taken cause it unburdened me greatly.
I love my mother deeply, and I think I can credit her with my love for films from an early age, which is why I mention her even though it might make me look like a mama's boy She took us regularly to the movies, she used to be a huge fan of Clint Eastwood, Chuck Norris, and Charles Bronson, and although she was cautious in what we saw, she didn't mind the occasional action film for us. However, it really wasn't until college that I really found myself immersed in films on a deeper level. Thanks to me discovering the Internet (it was the mid-90's), I started to read more about films and look for places where I could chat and talk about them. Ended up in a forum for the EW magazine, and there started my journey into movie-forum-land. Posting and talking about films gave me a more profound understanding of the medium and has given me more thirst for it, which has made me see films that I might not have seen other way. The impact that this passion for films has had in me is so big that it has made me reconsider my career choices many, many times. How many times I've wondered "if I had been this deep into films when I was in high school, I would've definitely studied something else".
Which is the best segue into my last paragraph... I studied computer programming and I've been working IT since I graduated. Most of my work has been as a computer professor, teacher, and instructor. I worked for 13 years in two technical institutions teaching students everything from computer programming, repair, to networking, and applications. However, for the last 2 years, I've been working as an applications instructor, mostly focused on Microsoft Office. I give 1-day trainings to corporate clients that want to learn more about Excel, Outlook, Access, etc. I enjoy my work, but I can say that I don't love it as much as I love doing things related to films, TV, entertainment, etc. But oh, well...
And that's all folks.
