This is my new website for my work and my presentations and readings.
I am Chicanx in that I am a Mexican American that is deeply invested in claiming a political and social identity that signifies pride in my culture as well as a responsibility to advocating for positive change for my community and fighting for a more equitable world, while at the same time acknowledging the gendered restrictions of an “o” and “a” by using the “x”. As a Beat writer, I am influenced by the Beat writers like Jack Kerouac, Bob Kaufman, and Raul Salinas.
My first love is writing fiction, but I have always written poetry and throughout my life have gained the skills of editing and also gained a love for teaching. Telling stories have always been a deep part of me, but I have always loved aesthetics of writing, so I believe I am a poet that writes in prose.
