Hi, it’s Bastián.
I never liked academics being young but still managed somehow to get a B.A. in Engineering.
Refusing to do what everyone else in my home town (Vienna) did, I bought a one-way ticket to Silicon Valley to work for Steli Efti.
After a traditional life in Palo Alto, including Burning Man and a bed in an overcrowded garage, I moved down south to Costa Rica.
I am really not funny, dance quite embarrassingly, try to surf various boards and recently got into Qigong.
Book: One Christmas holiday I felt frustrated being asked all the time why I am vegan so I wrote a book about it. Here’s the PDF version.
Activism: I spent 2019 with Extinction Rebellion in Barcelona helping set-up the mass mobilization strategy. I also took part in two campaigns, one being COP 2019 in Madrid and the other one being the XR October Rebellion.
Software: I’m currently building a new software product with my team called Wildmetrics to solve ROI analytics for campaigns, funnels & channels.
Now: I just rented my flat to a Swedish guy to take off for a couple of months surfing around Spain & Portugal.
I am also not flying in 2020.
That’s it. Over and out.
