About Me

Who is Gerardo?

Hi, my name is Gerardo Amaya. I’m originally from Guatemala City, Guatemala. I currently live in Toronto, Canada. I’m a creator, innovator and experimenter. I also love a definition provided by Alain De Botton during one of  Tim Ferriss’s Podcats: “I’m an ordinary Genius in the business of living”. How cool is that!

I’m passionate about technology, any form of creativity and sharing my experience to help others make the world a better place. I consider myself a Multipotentialite, a term I learned thanks to Emilie Wapnick’s TED Talk and Putty Community (Proud Member here).

My life has been influenced by amazing mentors, both physically and virtually, worth mentioning. Some of them are: Luis Roberto Baessa, Hector Polo, Tony Hsieh, Keith Ferrazzi, Mike Nethercott, Verne Harnish, Brene Brown, Tammy Neilson, Austin Kleon, Chase Jarvis, Gary Vaynerchuck, Seth Godin, Theresa Laurico, Oprah Winfrey, United Global Shift (Josselyne & Jessica), Les Brown, Arnold schwarzenegger, Bill Clinton, JFK and others that I will be adding to this list as soon as I remember (Apologies in advance, this is a work in progress)
