EscapeArtist Chile strives to do more than merely offer a peek into Chile. It’s our goal to be an integral part of your research and journey whether you’re investigating all that this wonderful country has to offer or already a part of its wonder and beauty. With this in mind, our services focus on insightful and informative articles, consulting and residency services, Spanish lessons and translation and various media services, all networked in such a way as to promote the activities, pursuits and vision of nationals, vacationers and expats alike.

Who are we?

Frank n VeggiesFrank Szabo is husband to Madeline, father of one daughter and an immigrant from the USA who came to Chile to build a new life for his family and to seek new opportunities. As a serial entrepreneur, he’s found a wonderful seedbed for new ideas and innovations in Chile, as well as fertile soil for startups and expansions, especially in his new hometown, Santiago.

One of his passions is organic farming, which he’ll often refer to on this site. Having started his own organic farm as well as a farm management business, he has opportunities to discuss with readers who are interested in learning more and/or investing in Chile’s lucrative farming market.



Mote con Hueisillos - El Galeón - Mercado Central - Santiago de ChileJoe Johnson in many ways typifies the EscapeArtist as a grandfather of four five who’s still attempting to figure out what he wants to be when he grows up. Having a great deal of experience with writing, a passion for networking, an innovative mind that constantly pushes the envelope and ignores convention (to both the delight and dismay of Frank) and who’s fallen in love with the beauty and diversity Chile offers, he brings fresh ideas, new personalities and many insights and opportunities to our readers.

He and his wife Pamela are still working on immigrating (to the delight of the airlines) from the USA. For now, they’re planning on settling down in the Olmué area.
