Leonardo Altafini is our Laner of the Week. He has been killing it on the Lane for two years now. Leo’s favorite ML gig was working with Good Sense & Company for the YouTube Brandcast event where Sia performed. When asked about the Lane Leo said, “The Laners, the love! Laners tend to be hardworking supportive beings!”
Outside the Lane Leo enjoys Catching Pokémon and traveling! He was born and raised in Brazil and moved to the states when he was 14. Leo’s glad to have grown up in two different countries because it’s given him a more open perspective of the world. Leo has been an actor, off and on, his whole life. Currently he’s figuring out his next career move.
