Yo, my name is Guilliean Pacheco, and you’re here because you want to learn a little somethin’ somethin’ about me. Let’s go!
I’m a thirtysomething of the female persuasion. I am a Northern California native, born in Oakland, and subsequently raised in Union City and Modesto. I live in Las Vegas normally, if one can call living in Vegas normal.
I refer to my heritage as Filipino adjacent. To be clearer, I’m an American of Filipino, Chinese, Spanish, German, and French descent. My current boyfriend is music. I possess a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from the University of San Francisco.
I was adopted by a Shih Tzu/Poodle mix named Jack on December 26, 2012.
I write for the ones who see the extraordinary in the mundane. I refer to my writing aesthetic as “cinematic absurdism.” I’m influenced by Jack Kerouac, Emily Dickinson, Walt Disney, J.K. Rowling, Ray Bradbury, Sandra Cisneros, Billy Wilder, Angela Carter, William Shakespeare, Joan Didion, Alfred Hitchcock, and Rod Serling. But not necessarily in that order.
I randomly quote Futurama, and possess a sonic screwdriver for those timey-wimey emergencies.
Traveling gives me life. I’ve been to Chicago, Houston, Raleigh, and Oahu, not counting all my trips back and forth to places in Northern and Southern California and Vegas. Road trips clear my head and inspire me creatively. I drive a 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan, which is useful in this hobby of mine. Her name is Idris.
