About Me


I enjoy skateboarding, surfing, exploring nature, and playing music.
I play the flute and guitar and sometimes I sing when I'm not terribly shy.

I am originally from Los Angeles, and my parents are from Durango, Mexico. I now live in Santa Cruz, CA.

I am interested in meeting all kinds of people and getting to know them. I want to make lifelong friends and understand different cities; what makes the buildings breathe and the local history thrive. What kind of stories lay beneath the surface.

I am very generous and am always happy to share whatever I have with others. I love hearing about people's goals, dreams, and careers. I also enjoy getting lost and learning about local history.

Music, Movies, and Books

Classic Rock and Metal

Some major influences are Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, and Fleetwood Mac. I enjoy Freddie Gibbs, but still can appreciate Tame Impala. I enjoy artists such as Matt Corby and City and City and Colour.

When I was growing up, I was into lots of Metal like Morbid Angel, Behemoth, Cannibal Corpse, Slayer. Right now, my older brother plays for the band Abysmal Dawn and I really love them.
