About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Getting my Master's.

ABOUT ME

I was born in the States, raised in a very international environment in Mexico and have been living abroad alone since mid-2004. I spent almost 5 years in California and Oregon and have been living in Germany since mid-2009. I recently finished my studies in history and Slavic philology at the University of Heidelberg.

Please don't make any assumptions about my character or personality just because I'm from Latin America; if you think I can teach you how to dance Salsa or that I'm even remotely interested in that kind of stuff you'll unfortunately be greatly disappointed.

I'm somewhat of a man of contrasts and like to keep a balance between the loud and energetic, and the quiet and mellow. And between the conventional and the unconventional.

References talk louder than verification, so don't forget to take a peek at my references to see what people wrote about me since I'll never become verified. And don't worry about looking for hidden words or any of that kind of bullshit on my profile.
