About Me

About me... information in the process of being declassified. That's me at the bottom...and no, the camera did not break. Yes, I am half-Mexican. I am one of the few (perhaps only?) Swedish-Welsh-Mexican hybrids around. My mother actually graduated from WHS many moons ago (1961). My father is from Guadalajara, Mexico. I grew up bilingual and visited Mexico every year during my first 18 years, so it is VERY much a part of my identity.

Quick bits o' info:

I go into more detail below that picture of me from the day a tornado ripped through Portland Ave in 2008 - four blocks from where I currently live.
