About
Salvador's an average bystander that's taken his first steps towards a life changing goal. Other than that, Sal loves to overcome the spiciest meals in the world when he's in the mood for a challenge.

By consuming the hottest meals on the planet, Sal hopes to obtain the powers to resist fire and drink lava as a refreshment. Hopefully, he won't burn up in the process.

He's currently devising a way to balance his love of anime, manga, video games, and tokusatsu into one manageable platter. While his plan sounds like an impossible task, Salvador hopes to make his goal a reality one day.

From time to time, you can find him on Twitter as The Crimson Blade, a nickname that was handed down to him by his close friends.
