I was born in the spring of 1991 in Mexico; was a weird kid, though I loved and was loved in my hometown of Torreón. At the height of the War on Drugs, I came to the United States in 2010. Four years later, I graduated with honors from the University of Texas at Austin with a B.A. in English. I am currently doing my masters in fine arts at Syracuse University—fending off the winter wolves and writing my head off.
