Oakland, California

I was born a migrant in the mouth of the Río Bravo, the River that can't be tamed. My daily practice is to be a living artist, a human rights blossom, to write "viva la poesía, viva el proletariado, vivan los pueblos indios de la tierra" in every which way and wall I can. I offer writing services to overcome "writer's block" and editing/creative feedback to improve manuscripts. There is no such thing as "writer's block" -- what you experience as a writer is "institutional block," where you have to write in a voice and language that is not your own. I will work with you to write in your own voice in every setting. My key words: community, la comuna, organizer, activist, land, water, wind, cultures, love, languages, tzintzuntzan; ink; clouds; poesía: I am currently finishing a manuscript titled: La revolución emplumada | the revolution to be human.

Consultant: community building; organization-building; mission/vision statement; editing; restorative justice.

Human: Writer, photographer, musician, poet, painting, father, grandfather, great-grandfather.
