Nov 4, 2019

Lorenzo Gomez III grew up in one of San Antonio's most crime-riddled neighborhoods and his middle-school years were turbulent, traumatic, and even violent. These trying times led Lorenzo to a dark place, until he made an active effort to improve his mental health as an adult.


In a new book, Gomez shares stories from his mental health journey and overcoming challenges that eventually led to him becoming one of San Antonio’s most influential technology entrepreneurs and advocates.

Guest: Lorenzo Gomez III, author of “Tafolla Toro: Three Years of Fear,” chairman of Geekdom, and co-founder and CEO of Geekdom Media
