I am a travel and event fanatic. Growing up, my mother was a travel nurse which allowed me to see most of America. It opened my eyes on what the rest of the world has to offer. From there, my love of planning conspired by always trying to plan for what came next.

I like to make things beautiful” Saul Bass. Born 1976 in Hollywood, CA. Italian mother and Dutch/Irish father. My creative career began in grammar school where I would get into trouble for doodling on all my school work. Moved to North San Diego County in 1986 where I have been until the present. I’ve recently held a Creative Director position for a large electrical contractor (www.procallighting.com) where my primary role was to raise brand awareness through content creation. I find start ups particularly exciting to work with because there is so much room for discovery and growth. What I’d like to get out of any creative experience is to first bring value to the brand by improving the overall aesthetics and most important, develop a strong relationship with everyone involved. People and relationships are truly what I believe make successful organizations. I see the MDS logo being these two commas facing each other and having a conversation. “One Comma is Never Enough” is not only applicable to increasing revenue from the MDS information sharing network, but it is also a way of saying that the more relationships you gain by joining is where the members really become rich.
