About me

About me
Originally from Havana, Cuba. I studied classical piano for 8 years, but for the craziest reasons, maybe my own tendency to always let my heart decide, I ended up as a journalist. I spend most of my time reading books and have already decided that my next step will be to write one.

Traveling makes me happy, and tacos even more so.

Why Los Angeles
LA reminds me of a country in which I lived for 6 years, Mexico! When I moved here I was ready for a change, for something new, I was looking for the sun, for fun, for peace, for love. All of that, I found here. And even if I move somewhere else tomorrow, this city will always remind me of a very important time of my life.
