Career Summary

I was born in Chile in 1966, and exiled with my family in ’74. I was raised in the Netherlands and in the United States.

In the mid-eighties, as a Texas teenager, I began to experiment with poetry and songwriting. I quit college in my sophomore year, held a flame to a stack of traffic tickets and some neglected romances, dumped my ’86 Pontiac at the front door of my soon-to-be former employer’s, packed up my electric guitar and my hard cover copy of The Tropic of Cancer and set off for Europe somewhere in the early nineties without really much of a plan.
