About Gustavo

Untitled photo

I love adventure, so much that I have climbed very high mountains (Aconcagua in Argentina at 22,840 ft), have my scuba license, have my skydive license (49 jumps under my belt), ride a Harley (ridden cross country twice), and ride a Honda dirt bike (which I crashed bad a few years back and have not touched it since).

My astrologer says as a Libra I am in love with love! Guess my job is quite fitting huh!

Favorite movies are “Life is Beautiful” and “The Notebook”, can’t wait ‘til they make “The Wedding” into a movie.

Good friends and great wine are a perfect combination. Hooked on my Bounty Hunter Wine club subscription right now.

I love fashion, Ted Baker and Bloomies sales are a weakness. I love splurging on classic fashion pieces like my Armani Suit, my Rolex Sea Dweller, and my Mont Blanc pens.

I speak three languages. Spanish my first (born and raised in the DR), English my second (sent to American school at second grade), and Italian my third (lived in Rome for 8th and 9th grade).

I love to travel! Born and raised in the Dominican Republic and have lived in Italy, Spain. California is the fourth state I have lived in.

I love giving back. I created my own charity to benefit children in the Dominican Republic. Check out www.hogforkids.com

I am Vegan, I like animals too much. I do cheat though, why sushi gotta taste so good!

I am totally green, got hooked after watching “An Inconvenient Truth” at Sundance Film Festival. Now I am referred as the Green/Eco Photographer. I got my biz green certified, I drive a Prius and love it, I recycle, etc.

I love running and working out. Have completed two New York Marathons and a few triathlons. Hooked on my new gym that opened up close by, UFC Gym.

I love reading/learning although it’s mostly done via audio-books these days.

I am a brother with the cutest nephew ever (see pic).

I was a social butterfly as a kid which landed me in a military academy to finish high school. That chatty personality in turn made me one of the top sales reps in the country in my previous pharma sales job, and now lets me have fun with my clients and their friends every weekend.
