About Me

I am a classical music singer and a historian. I would have liked to be a film director however, I discovered that pleasure too late. :(
Hiking and climbing mountains are my passion and writing as well. While academic writing can be boring for many (even for me), I found a funny way to talk about Mexican history using unusual characters such as bandits, drunks, thieves, drug dealers, pirates (YES, there were Russian pirates in Alta California a long time ago). If you are interested in reading my papers, you can find them on my website:

Crying after singing Bach in a concert is a RELIGIOUS experience!

Teach, Learn, Share

What I Can Share with Hosts

I live in the south of CDMX, close to El Colegio de México and UNAM. Unfortunately, I can't host anybody because of my schedule. Nevertheless, I could take you for a ride to the forest on weekends and do hiking, climbing or just hanging out. It would be a pleasure.
