I was born in Madrid, Spain, but my ancestors are mostly from the
Basque Country and from the Philippines.
My home towns have been Madrid (until age 10), New Orleans (until age 21), Pittsburgh (until age 36), and now Macon. I have enjoyed
traveling in Europe, in North, Central, and South America, in the Caribbean,
and in the US.
Who's that Bear?!
Hobbies: Besides playing chess
or penny-ante poker, reading sci-fi and fantasy, and listening to rock
music (mostly from the 60s and 70s), I enjoy a rousing fantasy or horror
role-playing game, such as Dungeons & Dragons, Gothic Earth, or Call
of Chuthulu... And I am still a big fan of the Saints, the Penguins, and
especially the Steelers!
