Walt has extensive experience with and has worked in all areas of the advertising, public relations and digital marketing industries, and joined the Costa Rica DMC team as Creative Director. He graduated from Flagler College in Florida, USA, with a bachelor’s degree in advertising and public relations. Having spent his young life studying at international schools, interacting with and learning about people from all over the world, and taking every opportunity to travel, he is well-acquainted with the world now in his 30s.
Professionally, Walt is drawn toward copywriting, content creation and graphic design. Creativity is his forte and he thrives in his freedom. He has a B2-level certification in conversational French, and is fluent in English, Spanish and Turkish. He is half Turkish and is often referred to as “El Turco” in Costa Rica.
Walt is passionate about fitness, goes out jogging at dawn and alternates between weight-training and abdominal toning six days a week. In his free time, he enjoys cooking elaborate and often-exotic dishes, traveling and taking photographs, frequenting regular and discovering new venues in the never-ending quest for culinary and leisurely pleasures, kicking back to a good book (preferably at the beach!), and blowing off steam at a rock concert or an electronic music festival.
