Chris Camargo is a writer living in Los Angeles. He is a graduate of UCLA and was once a graduate student at CSULA studying Political Theory until leaving with one class unfinished and the comprehensive exam left wanting – the inevitable result of reading too much Nietzsche and Heidegger. He is a four-time recipient of a PEN Center USA’s Emerging Voice Fellowship rejection letter. His work has appeared in The Altar Collective, Yay!, Los Angeles Magazine, and The Women Group, and he was a finalist for Glimmer Train’s New Writers Award in August 2014.
I have found that Modelo Especial goes best with my tears. You see, I am a UCLA Bruin (an actual Bruin that is, with the degree and debt to prove it), but that comes with a certain inevitability—we are going to choke.
