Noemi lives in the texas/mexico borderlands, birth place of Gloria Anzaldua.
I’m a long time zinester interested in alt.media, diy, edupunk, veg*n baking, indigenous issues, queer theory and reclamation, mestiza identity, borderland studies, women of color in alt media, raising brown boys, invisible disabilities, Mexican American/chican@ history, Texas/mexico border history, raising spitfire chicananitas, single parenting in alt cultures.
for fun I tend to burn plants, play with gesso and matte medium, invent recipes, research, question my love for scifi, robots and futuristic dystopian society, try to go into REM sleep, dye my hair red, kill zombies, dream of tattoos, create/creations, not be allergic to things, covet love and font envy, dream of futures.
I’m currently a student at Western New Mexico University, Master’s program, and the University of Texas Pan American, Mexican Studies cert program.
A few months back, I lost all the info and writings and photos that I had hosted with my old host. I had some of my writing on my computer but often what I used to do is post something, then work on it offline on my computer. I haven’t added my writer/artist statment. Maybe I’ll create a new one?
I feel much more cautious with words these days.

If love is a radical force, the work I do as an non-traditional teacher and storyteller are testimonies to this. Love is radical.
