Victor Francisco Mercado Felix was born in Nogales, Sonora and has lived in Tucson since 2001. His great-great uncle, W.E. Felix owned Tucson’s first dry goods store on Meyer Street in the 1800s. Victor’s grandfather Prici Mercado was a historian who chronicled the story of ambos Nogales in his books Ambos Nogales y Mis Memorias and Historias y Recuerdos de Ambos Nogales.

Victor is the founder of ElSurTucson.com. Victor brings to El Sur a deep understanding of media and communications, and most importantly a love of history and sharing the stories of the borderlands.

He holds a Bachelor of Arts in International Affairs and a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University and is co-chair of the University of Arizona Hispanic Advisory Council.
