Yo, my name is Guilliean Pacheco. It’s a hard G.
What is gpacheco.org?
It’s the digital playground for what I do. Call it a blog, portfolio, website, domain. It’s all me, all the time.
What is it that you do exactly?
I’m a creative writer and editor, photographer, web designer, occasional filmmaker, and fangirl. I’m in the process of assembling my Creativity Concierge services, so subscribe to Gilly Gram for more information!
I live in Las Vegas normally, if one can call living in Vegas normal.
Who are you, though?
A bit of a loaded question! I’m a thirtysomething of the female persuasion. I refer to my heritage as Filipino adjacent.
To be clearer, I’m an American of Filipino, Chinese, Spanish, German, and French descent.
I possess a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from the University of San Francisco.
I’m a Northern California native, born in Oakland, and subsequently raised in Union City and Modesto.
I was adopted by a Shih Tzu/Poodle mix named Jack on December 26, 2012.
I write for the ones who see the extraordinary in the mundane. I refer to my writing aesthetic as “cinematic absurdism.” I’m influenced by Jack Kerouac, Emily Dickinson, Walt Disney, J.K. Rowling, Ray Bradbury, Sandra Cisneros, Billy Wilder, Angela Carter, William Shakespeare, Joan Didion, Alfred Hitchcock, Shirley Jackson, and Rod Serling. But not necessarily in that order.
I randomly quote Futurama, and possess a sonic screwdriver for those timey-wimey emergencies.
Like a typical millennial, I’ve got that wanderlust in my soul. I’ve been to Chicago, Houston, Raleigh, and Oahu, not the trips back and forth to places in California. Road trips clear my head and inspire me creatively. I drive a 2012 Volkswagen Tiguan named Idris, which is useful in this hobby of mine.
What does raconteuse mean?
French is my preferred foreign language. Not quite fluent, but I kick ass in Duolingo. Raconteur means storyteller in French; raconteuse is the feminine form.
How do I connect with you?
I’d love to get to know you outside of this little hobbit hole of mine. Follow me on my social media profiles (I always follow back!), drop me an email, and don’t forget to subscribe to my mailing list.
