Ruben Rosas was born in Puebla, Mexico on a cold day in November 1981. He lived with his grandparents in Puebla until the age of 7 when his mother was able to save up enough to legally bring him into the United States. He became a permanent resident at the age of 16.
He lived in Coachella, CA until he graduated in 2000. He was the first person to pursue college in his family and ended up in Arizona at the Art Institute of Phoenix. He met his wife that year (That is a different story!). Graduated in 2003 with a Bachelors and pursued finance/banking jobs and did freelance art on the side. Well, until 2013 when he decided to put his art out there on a large scale and started doing comic conventions in Arizona. (Of course his wife told him to do so for a long time, but it took the word of a comic industry great to get him to do it).
In 2014 someone drove into the back of his home the week before his 2nd year of doing Phoenix Comicon. And as things became more complicated by the situation he decided in May 2015 to spend 6 months pursuing what makes him and his wife and kids happy and has been traveling around the South West United States having a blast.
