I was Born in Cuba, December 6, 1965. Granted political refuge, my family and I fled to Madrid, Spain, where my twin sisters, Gloria and Jackie, were born. We then migrated to the United States, Cincinnati, Ohio, where my brother, Jimmy, was born . We moved to Tampa, Florida, where I had a poem published in the annual school poetry book at Alexander Elementary. I graduated high school in 1984; afterwhich, I went to Tampa Technical for two years and received an A.S. Degree in Computer Engineering Technology.
