I’m a writer. I’m a scientist. I was raised in the city of Chicago by immigrant parents from two very different cultures (German and Cuban). I am the result of a recipe that includes the nourishing effects of organic diversity, sprinkled with a bit of insanity, a pinch of education and a dab of adventurousness.
The skinny and the fat blog is the epicenter, the peacemaker, the negotiator between the creative vs. analytical sides of my brain. It is also the place where I contemplate culture, race, and spirituality.
These are stories about my journey in trying to make sense of our world.
