From his humble up bringing in Patagonia, by age of 22, Gus had hitchhiked across Latin America, built and sold his first business and secured his dream job at one of the most loved brands in the world, Lonely Planet.

As the former Executive Director of Lonely Planet he led the company through significant cultural, structural and product transformation that put the company back in the black and ready to tackle a digital future. As a current investor founder and owner of a creative studio he is involved heavily in educating the next cohort of entrepreneurs and corporate innovators.
