Key Accomplishments

CEO | Content Marketing & Distribution

Gustavo brings over fifteen years of expertise building small, scalable, fast-growing media ventures with Fortune 500 and independent investors.

At HMF, Gustavo explains, we focus on building a culture among film producers and advertising suppliers, not just a company, that uses technology and market-driven processes to access niche consumers. Over the past two years, HMF has grown three successful start-ups and helped cultivate global markets for independent film, tv, and advertising producers.

In his prior position, Gustavo, as Managing Director of 20th Century Fox, organized two operations from scratch and steered several territories to a record market leadership 10 years in a row.

Gustavo has a BS in Engineering as well as graduate degrees from UC Berkeley and UC San Diego. He also holds three patents related to media technology, and lives between Miami and Puerto Rico.
