Favorite Latino fashionista: Carmelo Anthony
 
My first celebrity crush: Iris Chacon, Yuri
 
Something people don't know about me: At 11, I was working with my dad at a kosher butcher shop on Sundays. Child labor be damned! It instilled a work ethic in me that I still have to this day. Thanks, Pops. 
 
Guilty pop culture addiction: Real Housewives of New Jersey, Bad Girls Club, Real World
 
Two words that describe Elvis Crespo: Jerk Chicken
 
If I met Jennifer Lopez, I would: take the 6 train to the Bronx. We’d find the nearest bodega and get quarter drinks and share a bag of salt & vinegar chips. Then I’d realize it was Jennifer Lopez who works at my doctor’s office.
 
Movie that makes me cry: A Better Life, Up
 
Celebrity I'd switch teams for: Juanes
 
Latino artist on my iPod right now: 3BallMTY
 
Favorite Interview with a Latino Celeb: Willie Colon
 
Favorite Latin dish: Sopa de Bola
 
Favorite Spanish-Language Song: “Nada Valgo Sin Tu Amor”—Juanes
 
Proudest Moment as a Latino: When I got the call to work at Latina. To be able to promote our culture and gente to the masses is incredible. Dale!
