Biography


Curiosity and a thirst for knowledge have always been Yoel Villahermosa’s driving force. He has used all of those qualities to engage with English and Literature while also interacting with technology in order to access creative narratives, in the form of a Beatles song, a video game or an Edgar Allan Poe story. These passions became his inspiration to explore languages and literatures academically, reason for starting a journey that led him to a BA in English Studies at the University of Murcia, Spain, and an MA in Spanish from West Virginia University.
