Born in Fullerton, California, Fausto was scared of his father but still longed for his affection. As a child, he learned to live in his head and not complain about his father’s horrible treatment of his mother. Fausto believed his constant household dysfunction was normal. Ultimately, this led to Fausto’s social anxiety, sexual abuse, and longing for a new drug, love. Hiding behind different personas and women, Fausto tried unsuccessfully to run away from his past. He even faked his own death. Fausto lived through a drug overdose, being sexually molested at 14, alcohol abuse, broken relationships, the divorce of his parents, and his mother’s recurring cancer.
