Self-described as a Human Activist and Impact Nomad, Roberto was born in Mexico 34 years ago. After 6 years in the School of Law & Economics, he decided to become an entrepreneur and learn by doing.

In 2010, The war of drug cartels in Mexico exploded. During this time Roberto became the leading voice of hundreds of activists and journalists claiming access to real information, freedom of speech; and finding on social media the only channel where active citizens got informed about the war.

Eventually,  Roberto was pushed to leave Mexico due to the war, allowing him to pursue a new journey by working with NGOs, social entrepreneurs, and activists in Europe, Asia, and Africa.

Roberto’s pursue and passion for understanding social challenges, brought him to work with social initiatives in 10 countries across 4 continents: India, Vietnam, Thailand, Kenya, Rwanda, Morocco, Mexico, Spain, Czechia, and Austria.
