I LIKE TO IMAGINE AND BUILD BETTER WAYS OF DOING THINGS I've spent the past 20 years focused in finding harmony in the social, technical and business components of buildings, products and services. As a global citizen with an extensive design and business background, I bring a highly empathic and interdisciplinary approach to projects, identifying patterns and opportunities, and building meaningful human centered experiences. I’m proud of having built and led highly collaborative creative and technical teams, empowering individual creativity, navigating ambiguity, and achieving great results in small and large scale projects. I enjoy partnering with clients to facilitate progress and establish long term relationships. I am especially interested in the convergence of technology and design across disciplines. Together with a team of talented developers, I am currently on a mission to make experts universally accessible by building TABLE.co; a marketplace that allows anyone to discover the experts they need, book time, and collaborate no matter where they are. ----------------------- EDUCATION: Rhode Island School of Design: Architecture (BARCH) & Fine Arts (BFA) | MBAUC: Business (MBA) - Strategy & Leadership ----------------------- FOUNDER & CEO at the following startups: TABLE.co - On Demand Expert Advice - Speaker at GSV Pioneer Summit 2016: http://pioneersummit.com/2016-speakers/ Dropr.com - The Easy Portfolio Platform. - Speaker at OFFF Barcelona 2012 - Lovie Award 2012 - SXSW Interactive Award Nomination 2013 - Webby Honorary 2013 IM-AT Architecture - Design consultancy - Experience Architecture, Industrial Design & Service Design.

A seasoned entrepreneur whose input and knowledge is incredibly valuable to help any business operator create a successful perspective and plan. In the time we spoke, we communicated about the key things around my business and the best places for me to go and actions to take. I am very happy with the creation of TABLE and Cristian as a resource has been very helpful. There is a big need for connecting experienced experts with the developing dreamers- if you have found this place and have questions, jump in!

Firstly, I am very thankful to Cristian who was very patient through my logistical issues during the call. Given the state my business, he has provided me very valuable insight and advice. I enjoyed the conversation very much and learnt a lot from his own experience for fund raising, as well as got a decent blue print of my own next steps.
