Michael Noguera
  I was born in Valencia, Venezuela and lived there the first 14 years of my life. I presently live in Holland's south-side and am married and have 2 children in their teens. Having been raised in an English speaking household and attending an English curriculum school, I grew up speaking English and acquired Spanish socially through the interactions my father had with native speakers, the media, and making friends. The most difficult aspect in regards to building fluency in Spanish was initiating conversation, which I didn't attempt until I was around 10 years old.
I enjoy propagating blueberries, grafting fruit trees, listening to my children play music, hunting and fishing (when I can) and family time.
