Edgar Alvarez



Edgar began hitting newsrooms at a young age, ever since his dad worked at a news publication. It was then that his love for technology started. Growing up, he had two passions: gadgets and football (soccer). When he wasn't on the pitch scoring hat-tricks, he could be found near his SNES or around the house taking things apart. One bragging right he's proud of is how he was once the highest ranked FIFA 11 player -- unfortunately, that's no longer the case. He lives in New York City with his better half.
