“I have to live with this because I have it, I don’t know other ways,” he explained.
Filmmaker Travis Hoefle, who profiled Gomez for his YouTube channel, “Wizard of Odd TV,” added: “He’s a very nice man and loves to make jokes. I can tell he’s a very caring person and a real family man. Wolf Man’s outlook on life is very positive and inspirational – life is hard, but you have to make the best of it each and every day.”
