Born in Tijuana, Mexico, on February 28th, 1962. Pisces (so what else is new?). Son of Aurora, also called "La Yoya." Crosses into the United States "legally" since birth. Learned English by watching The Flintstones (still doesn't understand why yabadabadoo isn't in Webster's). Teresa's husband (thank God). Tall guy with glasses. Father of Santiago and Josue. Jefe at a small press called Yoremito (but who isn't?). Whoever looks into his heart can see the Pacific Ocean. Ah, those beautiful sunsets! Chinese food. Several books. Beer. Artichokes. Did I mention Teresa's big brown eyes?
