I’m currently a Mexican living in Austin. I enjoy spending time in nature, trekking, reading, cooking, photography, art, and watching movies. I’m a copywriter specializing in advertising, and recently I have delved into creating clear and helpful text in apps and websites to guide users (UX writing). I have a blog that has pushed me to learn about programming (still a newbie), something I once thought impossible.
