Holding degrees from the University of Chicago and Miami Dade College, Roy is an avid comic book and music collector, sometimes skipping two meals to save for another CD from those late-80s bands (O, why did they have to break up?). He fancies asking for help -- especially when he does not need it -- and his childhood hero is Cornelius Rooster.
