Surfer, paddleboarder, entrepreneur, start-up-junkie...
Industrial designer, trained Italian marble sculptor, furniture designer, and painter.
As a connoisseur of espresso, I bow to the complexity of pulling the perfect shot.
A storyteller and public speaker on transformation, meditation, and achieving inner calm.
Professional Deeper Dive:
I have 20 years of brand, product design, UX, and as a creative and independent designer and artist. As one of Yahoo’s first employees, I held the role of Interactive Design Director where I specialized in new monetized solutions, product R&D, and product development. I've also worked as a co-creative director for Time Warner. A skilled designer, 3D designer, product manager, and certified SCRUM Master I'm adept at helping companies create innovative experiences. Looking forward, passion-projects... I'm interested in AR and Mixed Reality XR/UX for military and medicine applications. I'm pursuing the Unity Interaction Design & Prototyping for XR Certificate.
I'm an avid paddleboarder and surfer in the PNW too Hawaii. My parents formally retired from the US Navy, and I've lived on both coastal seaboards of the United States as well as Puerto Rico and Italy. I'm an avid lover of the ocean, sea life, scuba diving, the environment, and those that will protect it like the SeaSheppard organization. Additionally, I'm a fan of James Gandolfini Jr. and created a filmography infographic about his impressive carrier. 38 nominations and 19 carrier awards. I had no idea!
