About me & my work:

Creating a platform for abundant living in Costa Rica - a place for dreamers, thinkers, artists and entrepreneurs to call home. A place for unique transformative events and experiences, community, and healing. We also like to just hang out, farm, and have nice dinner parties.

A little about me:

I used to organize large events in NYC, while studying philosophy at NYU and trying to figure out the meaning of life. I then began to get involved in entrepreneurial events in the US and Latin America as well as a diverse series of experience curation. I worked with the Burning Man organization helping creating experiences and salons for them around the globe. My passion was still rooted in planning and executing unique events as well as the management of event teams. But then I got bit by a bug, and wanted to create a place that had the perfect conditions for abundant living.

As the co-founder of Puerta a la Vida, I have spent the last 10 years in Costa Rica building a wellness resort and sustainable community for entrepreneurs. In 2012 I opened Costa Rica’s first co-working space “Nomada” as well as recently launching a boutique experience and event agency “Experience Vida”. We just opened our doors to produce and host DO Lectures Costa Rica 2015 for an incredible group of 140 Entrepreneurs from around the globe and next up Do Farm Costa Rica :)
