What’s your hometown (or country) known for?

The beach.

What’s one thing that reminds you of home?

My family, my friends, my city Quito and Independiente the team I played for.

What do you love most about Vancouver? 

The city at night, it’s really beautiful. Don’t like the cold though. 

Who’s one celebrity you’d most like to meet?


If you had to swap places with a teammate for a day, who would you choose?

Florian, I’d like to know what it’s like to defend like he does, with all the adrenaline and strength he has, it looks like a lot of fun. 

There’s a zombie apocalypse and you can choose three teammates to help you survive it. Who are you picking?

If you could have one superpower, what would it be?


Describe your dream home.

A mansion with everything, with a pool, with a pitch, with a theatre. 

What do you think you will do once your playing days are over?

Salsa and Reggaeton. Only those two everyday.

Describe your dream vacation.

With my friends in Cancun, Manhatten or California. 

What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?

In my life, I’m always going to have obstacles in my way, but it depends on how I see them. If I see them in a negative way, I’m not going to go anywhere, but if I see them in a way that will help me be better, I’ll always pass on to the next challenge. 

When you’re not in your uniform, what do you dress like?

Very casual, mostly in black and white. Sometimes I’ll bring out a little bit more style but I like to dress to normal.

What’s the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?

Thank God for another day of life, reply to my Mom’s good morning texts, then go shower, change and come to the training centre.

Patacones, which are Fried Green Plantains.  

What would the title of your autobiography be?

Life Without Limits.
