Héctor Sánchez Castañeda
Paul Wellman

We didn’t know that Héctor Sánchez Castañeda worked for an escort service when we took him on as a news intern; it was more his writing style that appealed to us. But much to our astonishment, we learned that this mild-mannered English major had the wee-hours shift as a CSO (community service officer) with the UCSB Police Department. When he’s not escorting coeds through Isla Vista late at night, Héctor confessed he loves to read Game of Thrones and is a fan of nonfiction. Fluent in Spanish, the third-year UCSB student prefers to read in the author’s original language, and he took up the memorization of Japanese characters these past few quarters. Manga in English, however, has been an exception.
