Engaging, witty, and sincere content focused on immigrant living in Mexico, as well as original commentary with a clear and earnest style on the political, social, and economic issues in the two countries I culturally straddle.

Journalistic and literary translations “by hand” to preserve the integrity of the original writing – no machine translation used.

“It’s no use of talking unless people understand what you say.”
