He was raised in the coasts of the Pacific Ocean with his parents up to the age of five, and when his parents separated, he had to endure and survive the consequences of his parents’ poor lives choices. The majority of his poetry reflects the pains and sufferings he had to endure.

How do you get inspired to write?
I honestly just let my feelings guide me and when I don't, I get inspired by art and the earth herself. There are so much and so many things I can write about if I put myself to it. Is not so much about writing, but making the choice and committing to it, but I have heard that just like sports, and other things, writing may not be for everyone.
What are you currently working on?
I have just finished translating the Spanish version which I am waiting on the final edits from my editor. I am currently trying my best to market my book, 'walking towards happiness' and the 4 journal companion series, 'let's save this moment', 'i loved you while it lasted', already published and available at Amazon and other online bookstores; in July the third journal companion series, 'a thousand lovers' and in August the final journal, 'trapped in my fears. These collections of journals hold within the main four emotional elements from my latest poetry book, love, heartbreak, passion, and loss. All of which will be published throughout the rest of the year in Spanish beginning with the book, 'caminando hacia la felicidad' and the first journal, 'guardemos este momento' in September.
What’s the best thing about being a writer?
I feel I can completely and bluntly honest be myself and never refrain from being who I am. Is that power that words provide and make me a creator of fantasies and worlds and it also provides the ability to tell my story.
What’s your advice for aspiring writers?
Never stop dreaming, but above all never stop writing. The future is not promised and nothing is handed over freely, one must work hard and seek opportunities and take them as they come. Everything is earned.
Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?
It truly wasn't an idea, my most recent book, 'walking towards happiness' is a story-telling poetry book which includes fragments of moments that marked my life from the beginning of my life to now. It has a deep and profound meaning to me because these are my emotions, my loss, my heartache, my grief, my tears, my anger, my torment, my hopes, illusions, and happiness.
How do you deal with writer’s block?
I find that at times frustrating, yet I feel I am very lucky since I truly don't experience it as much. Though, when I find myself in blank thoughts, I simply go with the flow, I don't let it bother me, I opt to focus on drawing or in reading, sometimes I even meditate or go out and live life. Inspiration is something that must be born out of the creativity of whatever I may be feeling and if whatever I am feeling isn't inspiring for such I let it be, I know, like everything in life is not permanent and neither it is my writer's block.
