My family line comes from many different places and cultures: Italy, Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia. I was born in Mexico and I moved to Houston a long time ago.
Fragments of all these places made the culture I have.

I worked as a teacher all my life. I have the need to be my own teacher now.
Motivate, push, pressure, and scold myself.

What I am is what you see.

We are complete humans until we have to describe ourselves. Then, magic happens!
We have to use different words and feelings. We become fragments. We dismember ourselves.

I describe myself through the characters I create.
I put me in all of them and, maybe you- if you dare. These fragments of life.

This is what I do.
