Javier is of Aztec ancestry whose family originated from Oaxaca. He was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. When Javier was very young, living with his grandmother, he witnessed an intrusion into the family home. The intruders entered his home through the basement, near his sister's room. Javier went upstairs to close the door of his grandma's room. He was around the age of 3, and the only one awake in the house. Little Javier went into the kitchen, got out a knife, and hid from the unknown strangers while they burglarized his home. He held on to the kitchen knife until the intruders finally left and he fell asleep still holding the knife. Luckily no one was hurt in the break-in, but the trauma of the event caused Javier to be scared to sleep at night. He had anxiety and felt the need to sleep with a knife under his pillow until he was 17.

Around the age of five Javier was placed into the foster care system. He lived in multiple homes and was abused in most of them. In one of the foster homes, Javier wasn't allowed to come out of his unfinished basement bedroom, except to go to school. He was only able to eat at school, Javier would eat breakfast and lunch at school then go home to sit alone, kenneled like an animal, in an unfinished basement until he could leave to go to school again.  The door to the basement at the top of the stairs was in the living room where his foster family would sit and watch TV together, sometimes he would turn his head to peer through the gap at the bottom of the door watching what he could see of the television and pretending that he was also a part of the family. At the age of 18, Javier aged out of the foster care system, and has been living on the streets ever since.

​He is the father to a 14 year old son, a soft gentle soul who has helped the Nomad Alliance at sorting nights and supply drives, gifting himself to improve his community. “Living on the streets has taught me to find happiness and joy in the little things and to never let shit affect you too badly.” he says. Javier dreams of going back to school and opening his own tattoo shop one day.
"Through every dark night, there’s a brighter day after that, so no matter what comes your way, hold your head up, stick your chest out, and handle it."
