“I don’t have any hobbies. Unless you call collecting knives and putting tattoos across the foreheads of guys I don’t like…’hobbies’”
What’s a fun fact about you?
“Interesting Fact: October 11, 1995 John Bobbitt had plastic surgery to increase his penis 3 inches and I like to think also to celebrate my Sweet Sixteen.”
“Justine Bateman on that show with Michael J Fox, “Family Ties” . She was so bitchy and bossy…… but I’d let her boss me around any day. Also, I vividly remember the first time i was … um… aroused… during a movie. and it was in the first Ghostbusters. When Sigourney Weaver is totally possessed by Zuul, and she is on the roof of her building , laying down. her red dress flowing in the wind….. : “are you the keymaster? I am the gatekeeper.” SO MUCH INNUENDO! she wanted someone who was a master with his key to ram her gate with it!”
Any traditions in your family?
“I pretty much have no family in The United States apart from my immediate fam. So every year during X-mas and New Year’s I make a special effort to completely disconnect and visit my gramps and my grannies in Uruguay. It can get rough being around family sometimes, but you never know how much longer they will be around. And it’s important for me to make them enjoy their last few years. Plus the fact that it’s summer in Uruguay when it’s winter in the States doesn’t hurt either. Oh yeah! and the fact that the absolutely MOST STUNNING women in all of South America go to vacation in Punta del Este, Uruguay definitely doesn’t hurt ;)”
Favorite thing to do while at home?
“I never feel like I’m truly home until i enter the subway and breath in the poignant mixture of rats and urine. Other great things about being home: Sinking into obscurity, turkish baths, MMA training, and underground poker clubs.”
“I believe in taking care of myself and a balanced diet and a rigorous exercise routine. In the morning if my face is a little puffy I’ll put on an ice pack while doing stomach crunches. I can do 1000 now. After I remove the ice pack I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower I use a water activated gel cleanser, then a honey almond body scrub, and on the face an exfoliating gel scrub. Then I apply an herb-mint facial mask which I leave on for 10 minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an after shave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion.”

From the Hebrew name גַבְרִיאֵל (Gavri’el). The name is composed of the words גברי (gavri, in the sense of “man-like”) and אל (el, “God”). Gabriel was one of the seven archangels in Hebrew tradition. He appears in both the Old Testament and the New Testament, where he serves as the announcer of the births of John to Zechariah and Jesus to Mary. It points to the fact that God’s angel has appeared before Daniel as flesh and blood.
