Alejandro has been published in Cuban and foreign cultural magazines. He received a diploma in Public Administration at the Higher Institute of International Relations in Havana, as well as several postgraduate degrees at the José Martí International Institute of Journalism and the Association of Social Communicators of Cuba. For the magazine OnCuba, he served many roles in their Havana office, including culture journalist, web collaborator, commercial supervisor for their printed edition, and editor of the Cultural Calendar. At the same time, he served as Communication Director for BandEra Studio, the first collective self-managed record label that produces, promotes and distributes alternative music made in Cuba.
Alejandro lives in the center of Havana, but his roots are linked to the sea in the eastern part of the city. He loves the night, reading, and savoring a good Cuban coffee any time of the day. When he travels, he never forgets a book. His dreams are many, and he never stops reaching for them, beginning with the first letter he types on a blank page daily.
