I am not sure where to start... I am a dominican, spaniard raised here in NYC with a Splash of West Virginia thrown on top! I love food and drink and travel! I also love everything athletic.. proper football, and the american kind, as well as skiing, bouldering, hiking and anything beach involved. I am a total music and art junkie, probably one of my most memorable evenings was a techno dance party in the Museum of Natural History. Besides that? I am a father, a husband, a friend, businessman and confidant to many... I would love to share my experience and local knowledge with any and all who are exploring our fair metropolis...

I'm a super friendly, laid back, fun loving local here in New York City. I've lived in New York over 4 years and I am absolutely in love. I'm originally from Philadelphia so I have always been a city gal. I love exploring new places and trying new things, and I love to share with people my hidden secrets to the best places in New York. I'm a HUGE foodie. I love food and desserts in this city more than anything else, so I will always have recommendations in that department. Fun fact- I've lived in almost every NYC borough (save for Staten Island) so I know a good deal about many of the city's various neighborhoods and what they have to offer. I love New York because I feel like its constantly growing and changing, and there is always something exciting to be seen. I've lived here for awhile and I'm always discovering new things- hidden secrets and fun little gems! New York really is the center of the universe, there's a huge mix of art, culture, history, fun...I could go on forever. I love meeting and hanging out with new people and sharing with them this wonderful city that I am so happy to be apart of!

I am a happy, glass half-full kind of guy who has fallen in love with New York and I want to share this amazing city with everyone! I work in finance in a job I really enjoy but in my spare time I love discovering new places and trying out the myriad of restaurants that never stop popping up. I know the best places to eat and also a number of really cool bars so if you want to see more than just Times Square then I'm your man!

I definitely am an explorer! I grew up traveling and living in different countries. I used to get up everyday and run through the city 6-12 miles. I have seen abandoned buildings, new and old graffiti, new cafes, hidden alleys, parks, the best pizza shops and clothing stores. I love the energy in the morning at flat iron, and the energy of time square at night. The city is beautiful if shown by the right people.

I'm 28 years old an have been in NYC area my entire life (except for a 4 year university in Maryland and 5 months in Spain). As an avid traveler I have been to over 20 countries and I still find New York to be the greatest city in the world. You can find anything here, things are open at all hours and the people are so lively, animated and diverse.
