Rodolfo was raised in a big city, but has the spirit of a small country side village. He has studied agronomic engineering and got a certificate in finance. Agrobusiness, friends, economic studies, sports, liberal ideas, writing and reading are only few of his passions. Close to the thirties, Rodolfo has a dream to become a leader of the “agro" sector, as well as writing a book. Not so close for the moment, but nothing that hard work, good ideas, straight values and lots of curiosity could not turn into reality.
