Leonardo is a passionate social entrepreneur and marketer with a solid background in online marketing and business development. At an early age he had the fortune to go on a month-long trip in Brazil, where he immersed himself in various tropical landscapes, Rio’s inner local lifestyle, and got to know the poorest people living in the favelas, which triggered a passion for learning and discovering what the world has to offer. Hence his decision to move to the UK, where he went on studying Marketing and International Business at the London Metropolitan University. While studying, he started exploring his entrepreneurial ideas and successfully launched his first business, an online travel portal. After selling the business, he decided to join the corporate environment and started working in the advertising department of Expedia. In 2011, he could no longer restrain his passion for travel, curiosity for life and excitement for the unknown and he decided to leave his position at Expedia to go travelling all over South East Asia.
