I’m a professional polo player with many years of experience working in Argentina, USA (Palm Beach – 2 seasons) and Europe, graduate level education and long marketing industry experience looking for full time work as polo club manager.

While working as polo professional I’ve played in 12+ goal tournaments, and normally trained from 6-10 horses. My experience includes training young horses, umpiring, coaching and selling horses. Besides typical grass tournaments I have played in benefit events and other tournaments of beach and snow polo. Normally in tournaments I have played with handicap of 3 goals, however my official handicap remained at 0.

Over the years I’ve developed my network in the polo world which includes contacts with polo clubs around the world, breeding farms, manufacturers of Polo accessories and “taquerias”, logistics and animal transport companies, professional Polo players, teams owners.

Besides experience as a polo professional I have graduated from University of Belgrano (Argentina) with degree in business administration and economics and Berkeley University California (USA) with degree in Strategic Marketing.
