Here's something I wrote about an old friend for the Inquirer. I had hoped they would use this picture of him by Brendan Goco, but they ended up choosing a more somber one. He was one of the most inspiring and prolific people I've encountered. But here he's just young, silly, and fun. That's the Alexis Tioseco I'd most like to remember.

Rest in peace Alexis and Nika.
