GROWING UP: I am from Los Angeles and I am studying 3-D Art at Santa Monica College.

CURRENT GIG: I am in the process of creating a video game and writing a book.

EXPERIENCES WITH RACE: Currently, I am working my way through school at 7-11. I usually see people freeze when they come into 7-11 and see me. I want to tell them that it is not just Indians that work here. Black people can work at 7-11 too!

FINAL THOUGHTS: I love games, Blink 182, CG Art and I am looking forward to putting my own video game out there. I am, also, proud to say I am half Mexican.
