From La Pampa, Argentina, with a degree in Media and Entertainment, Journalism and Customer Experience, David has lived in Buenos Aires for almost ten years now. He joined Road2Argentina in 2019 as a Director and Program Coordinator. He is a traveller, a River Plate fan and a coffee lover.
What is your favourite travel memory?
My best memories of a trip are from my cycling adventure through South America in 2016. I travelled on my own for 4 months around Peru and Ecuador, camping on the beach, meeting many local people and enjoying the best fish dishes in the zone. It was an exciting adventure and I learned to live only with the essentials.
How have you changed/grown since working for your current company?
Since working on Road2Argentina, I was able to combine many things I love: meeting people from other countries and different cultures, being able to show them the fabulous city of Buenos Aires and striving day by day to create the best possible experience, finding new places, discovering fantastic companies and NGOs. And enjoying what I do.
What is the best story you’ve heard from a return student?
The best story I heard without a doubt was that of one (already a great friend) of England, who fell in love with Buenos Aires and Argentina itself, who decided to return in a year, and live here for a while and probably also join the Road team! I believe that on each trip, the real magic happens when we are willing to leave the comfort zone and get into the unknown.
If you could go on any program that your company offers, which one would you choose and why?
I would choose the Internship Program without thinking twice. A great way to get into the culture of a big city and country is to be able to share things day by day with local people, in different contexts: work, culture, outings. This program allows all that and much more. In a few days, you will find yourself speaking in Spanish with coworkers, friendly people in a bar and even with your own host. That combination is what I think will allow you to take a rich and complete picture of what is Buenos Aires and Argentina.
What makes your company unique? When were you especially proud of your team?
I am completely sure that this company is unique to the people who are part of it, and how much each of us loves what he does on Road. Through the experience of having lived 10 years in the city, what makes us unique is to be able to know and show all those places, attractions, expressions, situations that are distant from someone who has not spent time here. Our focus is to be able to offer a 100% personalized experience and try to make the weeks here the best in those people’s lives.
What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful company?
I think the most important factor is to love what one does and be constant. I believe that only by being truly happy in what one does every day, and striving with a passion to give everything, can a totally unique experience be offered, can one stay in the best memories of a person for life. Love + Constancy + Pasion is my favourite formula.
