Mateo considers himself a product of globalization. He was born in Buenos Aires and raised in Toronto. He has lived in over 9 countries, is fluent in 4 languages and has 3 passports. He loves his adopted hometown of Stockholm where he has been living in since 2015. Having a high Cultural Intelligence makes him an ideal fit for the creative and diverse TEDxStockholm team.
Like many, his first contact with TED was way back, with Ken Robinson’s 2006 talk. He instantly became hooked and tends to binge-watch TED talks every once in a while. Even after having watched hundreds of TED talks, he still finds them fascinating and is often annoyingly pushing them on people.
When he is not involved in TED, he enjoys spending time with his family and friends. He works in communications and has a passion for helping people discover their “Why”
