Agiles Argentina


Gaston was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he is a recognized fan of Boca Juniors (best team ever BTW). There, he studied Business Administration but he realized that he needed to exploit his creative side. On the mid 90's he noticed that technology become natural to him so he started to look further into that path.

By the year 2000 he started a new career in technology. Since then, he worked for multiple companies in a wide range of verticals. In Argentina, his hometown, he worked for one of the biggest US telecommunication company and another major web services provider. After that time, he moved to Costa Rica where he worked for another Fortune 500 company where he refine his knowledge in a multicultural environment.

These days he still lives in Costa Rica, he got maried and he is a very happy father and husband and also an active golfer… don’t know why not a surfer, but that´s another story…
