Existing since 1984. Networking since 1995. I'm a freelance writer, blogger, web editor and music lover. I live in Monterrey, México. Most of my writing is in spanish. Among other projects, I comment and review music events from my city in weshallbefree, rant in a blog for newspaper Milenio called Licencia para confundir, and go personal and collect quotes in Perdida en el super.
