Biography

My executive and entrepreneurial experience in design and brand creation and development gives me a unique insight into brand-driven companies, their customers and consumers. I am a "shoe dog", having spent my career using design to increase athlete performance with Adidas, Reebok, K-Swiss and my own brand, Piloti.  I am passionate about all forms of motorsport and car culture, for which Piloti supplied competition and street-casual footwear and accessories.  My wife and I also train in Hunter-Jumper equestrian sport. While a student at ArtCenter I played tenor sax in the Vocalions blues band.
