Nuclear physicist by profession, poet by passion, a good amateur
cook, a scientist of feelings & emotions, a lonely traveler and
a silly carpenter. My ethnic background is Mexican, Spanish and

more than 2,900 meters above the sea level. A favorable nice place
to watch the stars at night. A cold and rather unpredictable

telling jokes, planning trips, meditating, and being polite and
educated in every appropriate situation.
