Homero was born in the Texas Panhandle and moved to Austin when he was 4 years old. He grew up in the Austin area and eventually made the controversial decision to not go to UT and instead attended Texas A&M in College Station. There, Homero received a BS in Psychology with a minor in Neuroscience, becoming the first person in his family to graduate from a university in the U.S. (and a Tier 1 university to boot!). Homero was drawn to the opportunity to work for a nonprofit dedicated to a cause very personally near to him. In his free time, he hangs out with his dog, plays soccer, and spends time on the ranch he was raised on.
