I first want to thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and read what I have written. My name is Jesús Saenz, born in El Paso, Texas in 1972 moved to the Los Angeles suburb of Montebello, California at the age of three. Not long after I began my career in mischief. By the time I graduated from high school, I had tried almost every drug available as long as I didn’t have to inject it… needles worried me. I was saved by God’s grace when I was 22 and have been attending Calvary Chapel Montebello since.
What’s with the title of your blog? Soul deSaenz is a name I came up with while talking to my friend Mario. The “soul” comes from Soul Skaters, which is the name I was going to use for the group I wanted to get together at church with all the skaters, but it never materialized. I kept the name for myself and had Mario design a logo which I then made stickers of as well as getting it tattooed on my calf. The tattoo is permanent, my return to skateboarding has been a bumpy road, to say the least.
deSaenz, pronounced like designs is a play on words using my last name, Saenz, which means saint and the fact that I have an interest in art and may eventually display some of my artwork.This blog will be for the purpose of sharing my opinions regarding just about everything. I tend to have many interests including roasting coffee, smoking cigars, collecting Bibles, skateboarding, movies, art, poetry, music, film (not movies), literature, theology, philosophy… I hope you stick around, there may be something I write about that may eventually be of interest to you. And please, please do not be afraid to comment about anything! Always feel free to contact me about anything! God Bless You
