I was born and raised in Dallas, but spent 7 years living in Monterrey, Mexico.
I am an ambicultural person, so I tend to get annoyed by people who only see the world through one cultural spectrum.
When I drive down the street in my Hyundai listening to NPR, I am still more gangsta than you.
Working, writing, playing basketball, exploring the city, making music.
I like collecting rare old vinyl, and I am in search of vintage furniture that will help me make my living room look like a Maurico Garces movie.
That I am unusually outgoing for a tall lanky guy.

You have no interest in strengthening borders.
You want to make the world a better place.
Arguing (not insluting) turns you on.
