Uriel has been a loyal Los Angeles Rams fan since they returned to the city in 2016. He also enjoys staying active, especially when his whole family is involved. Uriel has even crossed sky diving and bungee jumping off his bucket list. He regularly hikes, bikes, and works out with his family.
“I am excited to finally join the Royal team, I have had the pleasure of communicating with various members of the team over the years. I was drawn to Royal’s passion for learning and growth.
