My role model is my Father.

Salvador Perez as he is my all-time Catcher Idol.


  1. What do you want to study and why?

Economics, as I love the theory that goes with the work that is done, as well as it keeps me up to date and aware of where the country is at the moment and where it could be in all aspects of the infrastructure within the country.


  1. The greatest venue you have played in and why?

Gijang-Hyundai Dream Park in South Korea at the 2019 WBSC u18 World Cup. It was my first real experience of what it feels like to play on a professional Baseball field with a full-on homerun boundary against 18-year-olds from the rest of the World. It was an awesome experience and I could measure my ability against the best 18-year-olds in the World.
