Welcome to Moderno


My name is Carlos, and this is Moderno.

I’m a writer. Mostly freelance. I live in Houston, Texas where I contribute somewhat irregularly to various magazines and online publications. Freelancing is 95% rejection. As such, Moderno is a place where my rejected ideas find a home. Here you’ll find my more angry political ranting, much of my hip hop and music content, and generally anything I find entertaining to write about. Writing is my passion project, but also my side hustle. One that keeps me up at night and fills my weekends. Between work, family, and pitching, I rarely find the time to keep Moderno up to date. I try to post monthly. Sometimes it’s more, occasionally less. If you like what you read, drop me a line in the comments section.

As always, thanks for stopping by. And check out what’s new below…
