Welcome! I'm Guillaume de Zwirek (aka Gui) and I'm a 25 year old entrepreneur and aspiring triathlete based in sunny Santa Barbara, California. I'm a musician by upbringing. I studied jazz saxophone and classical guitar at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, and then the University of Southern California where I obtained dual bachelor's in guitar and business administration. Upon graduating in 2010, I landed my dream job as a product marketer at Google, and have since made the jump to the start-up world where I run marketing for FindTheBest.com and operate a little business by the name of BeachBrahs  a progressively bleaching conditioner that gives you surfer hair.

I'm heading into my third year in triathlon and am absolutely humbled to have the support of my beautiful girlfriend (Katie), family, coach and incredible sponsors. I can't wait to see where this leads and for now am just reaching for the stars while making the most of the journey. Feel free to browse and leave me a note in the comments (but seriously, please do... reminds me someone actually reads this thing). I'm also on facebook, google+ and twitter. Oh and yes... I wear a speedo.


  1. Hi Guillaume,

    What a pleasure to read your blog and race reports. As a beginner triathlete, I have to admit you are a great source of inspiration! Some races you made are in my todo list - Escape from Alcatraz, IM Oceanside. My next objective is a 70.3 in 2014.

    Fun fact: reading the home page of your blog, I noticed you just landed a job at FindTheBest. Well, my application is "being reviewed" by the HR and I really hope to hear back from them. If so, I hope you do not mind if I stop by your office/desk!

    Have a great day!

    Thomas D.
