Where I’m From

I was born in Cleveland, Ohio. 1977. At 4 or 5 my Dad moved us to St. Simons Island, Georgia where I spent nearly 7 years.

My 7th grade year we moved to Greer, South Carolina where I stayed until I graduated high school. Well actually, I went to live with my Mom in Alpharetta, Georgia for a year and then went to boarding school in Gainesville, Georgia for a year, then back to South Carolina.

Post high school I moved to Atlanta, Georgia (Roswell) and spent two years there, until I moved to Tampa, Florida.

I spent 3 years or so in Florida and then moved to Chicago, Illinois.

I lived in Chicago for 11 years and moved to Phoenix, Arizona 3 years ago.

So it looks like this…

  • Cleveland, Ohio
  • St. Simons Island, Georgia
  • Greer, South Carolina
  • Alpharetta, Georgia

Please don’t ask me where I’m from.

My mother is Mexican, my father was Czechoslovakian. I identify as Chex-Mex.
