Favorite food: Homemade risotto with porcini mushrooms. It’s not an easy dish to prepare, he says, but after many years, he recently made it for some friends and it came out "pretty delicious."
Startling fact: He's a huge soccer fan and has had the chance to meet and play with some of the greatest soccer players in the world. "But the day that David Beckham came to Soccer Cage Miami and congratulated me for creating it (pictured above), I definitely touched soccer heaven."
