My self-summary
I'm a cholo intellectual. I don't try to be anything except human, decent and original.

My favorite food is spicy.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
Crushing it.

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.

Actually, I'm somewhat dull and arguably mediocre, but I'm OK with that.
I’m really good at
Speaking Spanish, surprising people, making you laugh, cooking.
The first things people usually notice about me
My accent.

That I am "really white for a Mexican".

My peeps
laughter
I spend a lot of time thinking about
EVERYTHING! How to prove nationalism is an illusion. Remixing Huapango with Drum n Bass. Why Europe will be strong economically in the 21st Century.
On a typical Friday night I am
I am not that predictable. I could be sitting here on the computer. I could be in an exclusive party. Maybe I am playing basketball at the gym.
You should message me if
If you think I could make you think, smile, laugh, or scream.
