Personal Quote:

I was in Puerto Rico, celebrating my 39th birthday, when I got a call from my manager. She said: 'I need you to sit down.' I said: 'What's going on?' She said: 'Are you ready for this, Detective Alvarez?' I said: 'What are you talking about?' She said: 'YOU'RE DETECTIVE F*CKING ALVAREZ.'

Trivia:

Before moving to Los Angeles worked as a Police Officer in New York City's Penn Station, Grand Central Terminal and in the borough of Staten Island. See more »
