Welcome to my site. Here you’ll find news and information on all my life as an HIV Long-Term Survivor, my activism and a fairly complete listing of my piece about me or by me, including my writing for the non-profit I founded in 2013 Let’s Kick ASS-AIDS Survivor Syndrome.

I’ve begun writing my memoir. I may even post drafts of some parts of here when they are ready. Writing is challenging for me because the demons in my head say, “I’m not good enough to do this but by putting this out there, it is my way of committing to something else about which I feel passionate. I know I have an unusual story about survival and thriving despite the odds that implore me to tell it. So fuck those voices.

On the Contacts page, you’ll find an email address that goes straight to me, plus other contacts for work-related inquiries. I’ll probably even reply, but it might take a day or two.

I’m Tez a gay man living in San Francisco working Let’s Kick ASS to empower, engage, unify, and elevate HIV Long-Term Survivors.
