Let Horacio describe himself: “I love ideas. Any kind of them. That’s why you will see a lot of mixed ones here. It’s just that I don’t like to be encapsulated in just one kind of approach. I love to try new things. I love mess. I love experiment and learn from my fail”
He worked with big brands, like KLM and Viacom, to develop solid marketing strategies based on the innate understanding of the needs and behaviors of their customers.
