Víctor grew up in Puebla, Mexico, moving to California in 1985. With over twenty years of experience as a counselor, journalist, translator, educator and community organizer, Víctor now describes himself as a “cultural interpreter.” He was a co-founder and Spanish editor of the bi-lingual community newspaper Visión Latina.
