I was born in Caracas, Venezuela although most (if not all) my family comes from Panama and/or Italy. I came to the United States, born a citizen through my parents who had been naturalized before the time of my birth, when I was 6 years old.

I was raised in the most beautiful place on earth, South Florida. My family planted their roots in Plantation — a suburb of Fort Lauderdale. We lived literally 10 minutes from the Atlantic ocean with some of the best beaches in all North America. With South Beach (in Miami) only about 40 minutes south of us, we really were at the center of art, culture, diversity, and growth. But jobs became scarce and I needed to make a big change to advance my career in Information Technology, so I moved in 2009 to New York City.

I now live in New York, just one hour east of the City in a township called Stony Brook with my second husband and his family. One that I love very much.  Together my husband and I run a very large gaming organization called "The Last Prophecy Gaming", which I love just as much as I love my family.

I started TLP started with my late husband, Lucas... who was the love of the first half of my life... we were together for 22 years and I carry him with me.  I am blessed that my new husband not only supports me, but sees it as a beautiful way to honor such an amazing love.  It's one of the reasons he fell in love with me.

What you see here is exactly that... a labor of love.  In so many ways.  A deep, romantic love that you find in a marriage; a love of family; and a love for the people that call TLP home.
