I was born in Toluca, Mexico and moved to Chico, California when I was three years old. We moved to Eugene, Oregon in 1989 when I was 13 and attended middle and high schools before leaving for school in Olympia, WA in the summer of 1996.
While attending The Evergreen State College I moved around quite a lot during summers, semesters off, and internships. After graduating in 1999 I left Olympia for good and headed to Louisville, Kentucky for a year before heading back to Portland, Oregon. I stayed in Portland until 2004 when I moved to New York, NY for graduate school at The New School.
After graduation I muddled around with part time jobs for a few years then made the decision to go back to Portland where I’ve been since.
