Managing Director and Founder of Antiestático comes from the passionate City of Tango, prefers travel on two wheels and devours magazines
Matías Dumont founded Madrid-based audiovisual and interactive production company Antiestático in 2008, but he’s demonstrated his business mind ever since the age of five, when he began drawing pictures of cars he said he wanted to sell. He’s an adventurous soul, having emigrated from his native Argentina to Europe in 2004 with just €300 in his pocket. He landed in the mountainous microstate of Andorra, where he acclimated to the new continent before making his way to Spain to start a career in communication, primarily television, on programs such as Spanish Big Brother, El Programa de Ana Rosa, and El Juego del Euromillion. He also worked for FOX in Germany and Turkey and Antenna in Greece.
He’s clearly a man with a lust for life, but don’t just take our word for it. Check out his Essential List.

◦ Vacation: I love travelling abroad and discovering new places mostly with some spot for kitesurfing and diving
Kiting in Cabarete, Dominican Republic. Amazing spot!
The views and sunsets from our terrace are unforgettable.
