Carl Cervantes’ writing has been featured in various websites and online anthologies, as well as in print, in multiple issues of the Ateneo’s official student literary folio. However, his more interesting work has been self-published: Carl has been actively participating in the local zine scene, having sold in multiple art fairs since 2016. His work has also been distributed around the world. The selection of zines range from deeply romantic to occult and bizarre—there is something for every one who passes by his booth. Having been raised in a family of priests and mystics, Carl has always been interested in the depths of the human psyche. In 2015, he graduated with a psychology degree from the Ateneo de Manila University. In college, he was a theater actor and events host; after graduating, he pursued a career in the entertainment industry, as an actor, commercial model, and brand ambassador. He has also worked with students and vulnerable communities. Carl is currently taking up his masters in the Ateneo.
