I was born in Cuba and came to the U.S. at age 13. I’ve been writing poetry since just about then, have an MFA and a JD from the University of Florida, and currently work for the U.S. Department of the Treasury. I am also the poetry editor for Compose.
I used to write songs: Eclepto Funk Americana
If you want to read more about me than anyone could possibly care to, I suggest my autobiographical piece In Defense of the MFA.
