Werner was born and raised in downtown Guatemala City and grew up in the Church of God. He attends the Guatemala City congregation. He is a Family Counselor and is currently involved in clinics to earn his license as a psychotherapist. Werner has worked as an EFL (English as a Foreign Language) teacher in Guatemala for over twelve years at the High School level and with young adults.

When he’s not doing any of the above, Werner enjoys hiking, swimming at the local pool, traveling and scribbling away what he hopes will eventually become short stories and novels
