Mexico City, Mexico
Fiction in Spanish with Alberto Chimal
I’ve lived long enough in Mexico City to accept that being chilango is the only demonym I may ever fit. I studied political science in Mexico and received a master’s in public policy as a Fulbright Scholar. After nearly a decade of being a ghostwriter and a speechwriter, I refocused my efforts towards the exercise of developing characters for a narrative purpose. Currently, I’m in the process of writing a novel with the hypothetical title Chilango Culiacán, and some other short texts that are being weaved into the margins. Since the imperfect is so hot in us, at UTV I am looking for the delight of learning from a very talented cohort, while exploring my own narrative intuitions. Most of my time is uncarefully divided between teaching, taking care of two beautiful xolas, brewing beer with friends, and reading.
