Who AM I?
My name is Alvaro Rodriguez. I am from Colombia and I am very proud to be from that beautiful country. One of my great passions is life because I have walked this path by sharing it with amazing people. People that have taught me to see the world in a very different way. Extraordinary individuals have showed me what I could never discovered by myself.
I am an eager reader of science, poetry, politics, and music (yes, the meaning and composition of song lyrics). I have a great appreciation for art, languages, and the expression of everyone's perspective seen from the lens of a camera.
I love Astronomy and one day I will be in space. I am a Research Scientist in Corrosion Engineering and writing is a great way for me to tell the world how I feel.
What do i do?
I became a runner in 2010 when I completed my first race. I ran the Akron Marathon in a time of 5h and 30 min. I am a better athlete now and during my last race, I run the Corvallis Half Marathon in a time of 1h and 50 min.
During my visit to the NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio with the Astronomy Club of Akron in October 2015.
I do promote Colombia and the Latin America culture by serving as an international speaker.
