Alfredo Paredes, Rima Suqi, Orior
Q+A with Alfredo Paredes for Orior

The best part of any interview is the surprise. If there is one. And there almost always is. The surprise with Alfredo Paredes came with the "do you have any ties to Ireland" question. And it turns out that he's actually Irish, and the way that was figured out is insane. Read it here....
