Made in Italy… Made to Explore!
Ciao, I am Daniela!
Born and raised in Italy, I am now based in NYC. This is one of the reasons why I like to consider myself blessed with both Italian artistic passion and NYC’s unique edge! Currently I work as Creative Director and General Manager at The Ad Store NYC, creative agency part of an international network, and I am also member of the M.A.C. Lab (Lab for Management of Arts and Culture) of Ca’ Foscari University of Venice – Italy. I am also Co-Founder of the Ca’ Foscari University Alumni – NYC Chapter and a collaborator at Ruler Art, Art Gallery based in NYC.
A bridge builder between the world of Creatives and the Business environment, in 2018 I got in touch with Forbes to become a contributor. So far I’ve been working to build my presence around creativity, innovation and storytelling, and contributed to more than 20 articles as well as long form posts.
I’m a “can-do gal” with a dynamic and growing skill set. As strategic leader, my goal is to unleash the timeless power of creativity to build authentic connections between brands, artists and consumers. My passion stays in experimenting new approaches and in contamination, by combining areas/disciplines/fields that apparently have nothing in common.
Out of work I nurture my mental & physical strength with endurance running and kick boxing, I relax & challenge myself with Vinyasa Yoga and I unleash my creativity by studying acting, exploring art galleries, dancing at live music events and experimenting new recipes in the kitchen.
Currently I am involved in the following initiatives and projects:
- The Ad Store NYC – Creative Agency – General Manager and Creative Director
- Ca’ Foscari Alumni NYC Chapter – Co-founder and Co-President
- Forbes – Contributor
- The Ad Store Magazine – Online Magazine – Blogger about Design and Design Thinking
- M.A.C. Lab (Lab of Management for Arts and Culture) Ca’ Foscari University of Venice – Member of the lab
