Personal Quote:

Hollywood is very tempting. It's tempting in the sense that you can be meeting interesting persons all the time. Living in Mexico allows me to be more down to earth, to see regular people, life itself bubbling.


His novel El Bufalo de la Noche (The Night Buffalo) was adapted into a feature film by director Jorge Hernandez Aldana. See more »
