Alternative bio:

Amílcar PRESI Sanatan is his mother’s favourite son and eats pepper in every meal for the day. Blending his passion for social change with creating writing and performance, he continues to be an underpaid, undervalued, artist in his homeland. His dream in life is to be a whole-wheat doubles vendor and he hopes to retire as an umpire for International Test Cricket. Sanatan looks forward to meeting people who were born in the year 2000 because it is easier to work out their age.
