Jovany Rosado: FULL TIME, EMT. Well I’m a country bumpkin raised on a pig farm on a tropical island. I’m an easy going gear-head that just loves humanity and firmly believes in that an ounce of honest heartfelt kindness will stop a tsunami of negativity and hatred. I’m a loving husband and father to a three month old baby girl and a 13 going 30 young man whom I swear wants me to get hit by a meteor. As a gear head and an overall science enthusiast I love to tinker, modify, tear things apart and poke about it, whatever it may be. I however am not a hopeless and unreasonable romantic. We live in the REAL world where sometimes bad things happen to good and bad people. Where accidents happen and people do terrible things to themselves and sadly to others. I believe without a doubt that I can somehow in this giant equation of life, I can, with my tiny number, make a significant difference. I’m a liver and lover of life. I believe that life is too short as it is without negative circumstances prevailing. As an EMT-B with his eyes on Paramedic school, I might be able to provide some time of precious life to those who I can extent of my abilities to.
