From DC to New York, Alonso feels his upbringing not only taught him how to deal with the school of hard knocks, but also prepared him for his biggest goal, his acting career. He credits the move to NYC as his move into manhood and the city holds many great memories for him. He also credits his acting ability to these life experiences, as he is able to bring a little of what he knows or has dealt with into his characters.
