The Story

Ernesto is originally from Venezuela, but at the age of 23 he decided to move abroad to start a new life. He arrived in London in 2003 not knowing anyone, speaking no English and with only £300 in his pocket. Ernesto worked as cleaner in hotels and restaurants and from there he worked his way up to enter the highly competitive consulting industry of the City of London whilst also forging himself as an entrepreneur.

Ernesto is an eclectic combination of diverse passions, ideas and experiences. This has led him to define himself as a ‘Renaissance Man’, because of his deep interest for humanism and the revival of learning across a wide range of disciplines. His interests and expertise ranges from marketing to psychology, from astronomy to spirituality, and from philosophy to music.

The renaissance was a period where men were profoundly interested in Socratic thinking and the human expression through art, writing and debate, something Ernesto is always interested in. The renaissance was also a break away from the conformist society and it was a movement that opened doors to innovation, imagination and creativity, values that Ernesto strives to pursue daily.

Ernesto defines himself as a passionate learner in ‘eternal beta’, he loves books and travelling is one of his biggest passions. He has now travelled to more than 50 countries. Ernesto lives in London.
