He was born in Guadalajara a little before yesterday. She was going to be a teacher and ran into the theater; then she found a library where she told stories and the boys and girls believed she was a witch named Rotundifolia. The dream of traveling distributing poems and stories out loud to children and adults continues to have every day (or almost) for more than thirty years, but he also likes to stay at home thinking and imagining.

Two essays have come out of his thoughts: Counting on stories and Counting on poetry, and a few articles that talk about orality, his favorite topic. Many poems have come out of his imaginations, some in the form of an exhibition of visual poetry  and others in the form of a book: Wave Notebook, Life in White, The Four Songs, Colors, Everything in Its Place, Five Little Wolves, Three Sheep and Out for a Walk are some of them.

As she loves artifacts, she is happy that Las Malas Compañías presents her poem Bella Dama inside a box, as a gift that keeps the beauty of the world. 

Now,  He also teaches one of the Bad Company Workshops on "Counting on poetry."
