Octavio Rivas is a jack of all trades and by this I mean he has worked in multiple industries, ranging from ski resorts, hospitality, military, and recreational. He works out of a room with some climbing gear 🧗, snowboards🏂, skis🎿, and his dog Vesta🐾, who stares at him for another walk around the mountains or for treats.
I was born in beautiful Concepcion, Chile. (Yes, the country that looks like a Chili pepper) We moved to the states when I was a wee lad, doing my elementary in Virginia. Later would move back to Chile and stay throughout high school. During this time I was focused on a snowboarding career; instead, I got injured and started reconsidering my life choices. I would create a board shop that was a great success and then look into becoming a sports physician. However, life happens again and I decided to move to Incline Village, NV, and study Finance & Economics, and Global Business Management.
With more things happening in between, and of course the pandemic. I started to look at what made me happy, and photography, film, and being able to travel were keystones. Now I work as a UX Designer, Investor, Business developer, Digital Marketing, and most recently, yours truly Curated Expert.
