Born in the decrepit city of La Habana, Cuba, I moved to the U.S. at age five and grew up in the very rambunctious Hialeah (Miami, FL), raised on pastelitos de guayaba and home-cooked versions of the dishes you might find at a Pollo Tropical. My love for learning and the guidance of an amazing handful of people got me to the University of Chicago, “where fun goes to die.” But little did I know that the U of C would also be a place where friendships would flourish, love grow, and opportunities abound. Amidst those painfully windy winters in the wasteland otherwise known as Hyde Park, I found all of those wonderful things.
Five years ago, love led me to Geneva, where I’ve encountered a new day with a bright sunrise full of promise and possibility. After a brief hiatus to continue my studies (proud Fletcher grad) I am back and in full force, ready to explore everything Geneva and Switzerland has to offer.
Follow my blog for updates on restaurants and bars in Geneva, events, and travel destinations in Switzerland and abroad. I also write occasionally on international development topics related to business, the UN, and migration issues.
