Born in California to Mexican parents, Daniel Hernandez grew up bi-lingual and bi-cultural. He spent several years writing for newspapers such as the LA Times and LA Weekly before moving to Mexico City to work as an independent writer.

His blog Intersections has a focus on current events in Mexico and Mexico City in particular, for example the ‘chaotic’ celebrations for San Judas Tadeo, the preferred saint of ‘lost causes’ among young people.

Hernandez’s last post, on 1st November (day of the dead in Mexico) announced a break from posting until 2009. We look forward to seeing it back in the New Year.
