Edgar started hitting newsrooms at a young age, when he would accompany his dad to work at a news publication. It was then and there that his love for technology began. Growing up, he developed two passions: gadgets and football (soccer). When he wasn't on the pitch scoring hat-tricks, he could be found near his Super Nintendo or around the house taking things apart. One bragging right he brings up at gatherings is the fact he was once the highest ranked FIFA 11 player in the world -- unfortunately, he no longer holds that title. He lives in New York City with his better half, and there's a plan to add a canine to the family in the near future.
