about me

My story really starts off during the Cold War but just not in the way that you would think. My parents were both teenagers in El Salvador when a Civil War broke out in the tiny Central American country. Overnight, El Salvador became another battleground in the ideological fight between Communism and Democracy.  My parents became one of the hundreds of thousands refugees that fled El Salvador during the decades long Civil War. With them, they brought their memories, culture, and an overpowering sense of nostalgia kept alive through their storytelling traditions.  

And that’s where I come in.
