Ernesto Yerena Montejano was born in the small border town of El Centro, California, just 15 minutes north of Mexicali. This large metropolitan city is the capital of Mexico’s Baja California Norte. As a child, Ernesto lived and attended school in the United States; however most of his free time was spent hanging out with his family south of the border in Mexicali. Constantly crossing the border gave Ernesto a unique perspective, and in his eyes, the best of both worlds. He had access to the free education of the first world and the cultural richness and authenticity of the third world.
