Gerardo Mena is a decorated Iraqi Freedom veteran. He spent six years in military Spec Ops with the Recon Marines. He gets frustrated with the pompousness of the short bio but knows that no one would attend his panels and discussions unless he unwillingly brags that he’s been published in The New York Times, and Poets & Writers Magazine, and that he has a poetry book out, and that he’s performed his work alongside Jake Gyllenhaal, Anthony Edwards, and other A-list actors. Vogue Magazine said he captivated the crowd at a national fundraising event, but he doesn’t understand how because he knows he got way too excited at the open bar beforehand.
