Born in New York City to a Cuban immigrant and a Spanish political refugee, I went on to study International Relations at Edinburgh and Oxford, before embarking on a public policy career which culminated with a stint at Google, Inc.

I won the BAFTA New Writing Competition for Film in 2016.

At that point, I got the infamous itch… so I dropped everything to set out unironically in pursuit of God or Enlightenment — whichever one hit me first.

I’m currently the Librarian of the Oxford Centre for Buddhist Studies.
