Growing up Chicano, a product of both Mexican and American cultures, has given me a unique vantage on life and I love to express that through my writings, poetry, photography and art. I discovered the power of writing in High School and haven't stopped since. I have published a book, "Songs From the Barrio: A Coming of Age in Modesto, Ca.", a collection of poems and stories about my growing up in a small, Mexican Barrio in Modesto during the 1940s, 50s, and 60s, available at amazon.com.

I've been working on the CD for a few months now. A satisfying project with the help of Mike Torres, Jr. Recording in Stockton. Had original selections of episodes we recorded for radio back in the early 80's on a bunch of old cassette tapes. All of them have been transferred to digital and a selection of some of the best will appear on the CD. It should be ready by the first of August 2015, and I will post details of how to order one for yourself.
