NOW

I am an Advisor to both Culture + Commerce, the country’s leading design management agency, and Material ConneXion, the world’s largest materials library. As matchmakers, Culture + Commerce pairs some of the design field’s biggest names with major retailers across the country. The team also oversees public relations and business development for design industry clients.

 

THEN 

I grew up in Milan, with design in my DNA. More recently, I was President of both Culture + Commerce and Material ConneXion, a position I held until 2016.
