Born in Havana in 1975, Michel Ruiz Rosquete is a biochemist presently engaged as a researcher at the Department of Plant Sciences, University of California, Davis. Main interests include languages and photography. Reading Cuban poet Norge Espinosa, in early adolescence, strongly motivated him to attempt verses for his own life experiences and translations thereof.
