What’s this all about?
Here is the promise of my weekly newsletter delivered every Friday/Weekend:
Reading this will bring insight, joy, and help you find the beauty/interesting in the mundane.
It will typically feature a musing, media worth consuming, and a photo or song of the week to leave you delighted and ready to move on with your day.
Here are some topic I’ve covered (both here and essays in my personal page):
Creativity - Accidentally Wes Anderson
Introspection - Three Lessons Learned in 2022
Sabbaticals/Work Culture - So, you got laid off
Culture - Book Chugging
Colombia - La República de la Papaya (Spanish)

Thank you for choosing to go on tangents.
Thanks for stopping by. My bio is currently being rewritten. Not in the sense of “oh, I need to write something on this page.” More along the lines of “My life is going through a re-invention.”
Here are the immutable parts: I was born in Colombia and spent my childhood there. Moved to the USA when I was 11 and became a multicultural hybrid.
I also enjoy staying active. Whether it’d be through triathlons, playing soccer, skiing, yoga, or dancing I find joy in movement. I’m also one of those people you can talk for hours about topics as diverse as soccer, best anime shows in the last 10 years, and the history of Reggaeton.1
I’ve been writing for over a couple of years. It started with The Compass, the book I wish I had when I was 21. Many of my essays can be found in my website, and now you’ve arrived at my newsletter where I will be publishing the bulk of my writing.
Professionally, I’m currently on sabbatical from spending 7 years in Tech Sales. My writing will reflect my creative pursuits, challenges, and epiphanies.
Is this a copy/paste from my dating profile? Perhaps.
