Hey Andres

Raised in south San Diego. Matured in San Francisco for 10 years. Marinated for another 5 years in Los Angeles.
I'm married to my wife, Junia, and have 2 lil niños - Xiomara (Xio) and her little bro, Nico. 
I'm not a religious person, but I get spiritual when it comes to art and design. Music, movies, video games, comics - if it's good shit, my eyes force close and my head sways as my body says hallelujah.


In fact, here I am as a 3 song mini-playlist. 

One of my all-time fav bands. This track just happens to be the song I'm listening to as I made this page on the site. The 49/50 bpm rhythm with the bedroom synth and drum loop. It touches this fantasy and angst from the 80's kid that I happily carry around inside me.  

This song isn't an attempt to post some unknown band from Japan to prove how cool I am. I don't even necessarily listen to these guys, but this song - it represents SO much. The hardcore and emo scene in San Diego was world famous in the mid-to-late 90's. Not only does this song accomplish what everyone was trying to do back then, it hits the emotional drive that fueled who I was and who I became as a young adult. It's a perfect song...

This is perfect example of one of those spiritual trips I was talking about.
