Edgar started hitting newsrooms at a young age, since his dad worked at a news publication. It was back then 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 SNES or around the house doing random teardowns. One bragging right he's very proud of is the fact he was once the highest ranked FIFA 11 player in the world -- unfortunately, that's no longer the case. 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.
