  2. Here is an old flashback picture of me and my mom, the amazing woman who raised me while simultaneously beating back breast cancer.
  3. Yup, that's my pops rockin the orange and black in 1977. D-Back number 14, SJHS. #flashbackfriday #daddio #shutdowncorner #tigers

  4. And here is my dad, the man who taught me everything I know. I couldn't resist using an old high school picture of him from San Jacinto High School. I was born and raised in SJ and went to the same high school as my dad and his dad before him. On to our 5th generation in the valley now.
  5. Nothing like a little baseball on a good summer night! @dustylong33

  6. This is my lovely girfriend Alicia, better known as Leesh :) She's my rock and has been through this difficult program. I can't believe I let 2 years go by as her neighbor without meeting her.
  7. Who needs the Super Bowl when you can go boarding on a beautiful day like this!

  9. A reunion of sorts. The real motley crew minus a couple of absent hood rats. Thanks for the pic NY :-p

  10. These are some of my best friends. Some I have met in my college years and others go way back with me.
  11. Approximately 7 years and 3000 miles later.... #tbt 🏄🐒☀

  12. This guy being the very best of 'em. He's been my best friend since the 8th grade. We've been through everything together from wrestling in high school, to surfing, and even joining CSUSM's teaching program together (He is enrolled in the Special Ed Multisubject Program).
  13. It's hot. It's humid. Its exhausting and painful.... But it reminds me of home... #wrestling #pride #glorydays #istillgotit 😪😁✊💪😉

  14. Speaking of wrestling. This is my old wrestling room. Since I graduated high school 10 years ago I've remained close to the program and helped with coaching whenever I can. My goal when I become a teacher is to eventually have the opportunity to take over a program as head coach one day. I love the sport and it has had a massive effect on my life for the better. I want to be able to provide that same experience for young high schoolers
  15. Love coming home with this stuff. Miss this sport. #wrestling 😉

  16. Of course, wrestling does have some consequences every now and then, but that's all part of the fun.
  17. Stole this one from Ana's photo album. Back when our voices were still squeaky... #tbt @bryegreen

  18. The majority of what I have learned from wrestling comes from this man, Stan Holmes. Arguably the single most important mentor of my life outside of family. I owe him many parts of my character today.
  19. Pre-class meal... 👌🏻 #brainfood #edss530ig

  20. Had to take a picture of this the other day before class. One of the side effects of a post wrestling career is an exponentially increased love for food, especially food that isn't good for you. I for one am a fast food addict. In N' Out was and still is one of my favorite choices since high school. Double Double with grilled onions? Yes please.
  21. Yeah... I'm the asshole at the Padres Rockies game reppin' the Dodgers 😉👍💙 enjoy yoself... @leeshcapeesh

  22. Another large part of my personality is I'm an unapologetic sports fanatic to the bone. I'm competitive as it is and I love the excitement and intensity that sports provide. Wrestling certainly contributed to that as well. Whether it's NHL, MLB, NFL, NBA, or anything really for that matter, I'm there and I'm usually hooked. At 5'8" and 150 lbs I'm no significant athlete, but I love getting out and trying my hand at playing whenever I can.
  23. Ready for the big game.... Kind of a big deal for me... Just a smidge... 🏈💛❤😳

  24. Needless to say, it's not hard to figure out which of my sports teams I care about the most.
  25. Grand Canyon!!! Next stop: Albuquerque NM. We're just gettin' started... 😎 🌵🚗 @mdpedrotti @ninopalanca
