About 

I was the kid who would read his two collections of encyclopedias and compare the information in each set. I have the curiosity and need of discovery, you can often find me lost in the abyss of knowledge that is Wikipedia. I love being involved in many things, from graphic design to hands-on intensive fabrication projects. I love challenges; I see them as opportunities for growth. If you have any questions feel free to contact me at jonrequillo@gmail.com.
