I'm alex, and on a normal day you can catch me ranting about chicano life with a cup of coffee, or working... with a cup of coffee. And I love playing "Pedro" my guitar, as an homage to no other than Mexico's golden age cinema legend... Pedro Infante. I write a lot of songs, poems, short stories people won't see, and currently contribute to my school's press. And I'm trying to constanty keep projects experimenting, but we'll see how they turn out.
