What would Spotify say is your most-played track?

Currently, it would be “Left Hand Free” by Alt-J. My all-time most-played track? Maybe “Slow Cheetah” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Best advice you’ve ever received?

There’s two that I’ve always followed:

  1. “Finish your education young.”
  2. “You don’t get time back, so do what makes you happy.”

What’s one accomplishment you’re most proud of?

I recently completed my degree at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. I also did it while interning here at Mancini every summer, and a few semesters I interned atop my studies. It’s been a lot of work but I’ve learned so much. I’m happy to join Mancini full-time now that I’ve completed by studies and can’t wait to further my craft.

What’s the one phone app you absolutely can’t live without?

I start every day with some puzzle apps to get myself thinking. I also look at Pinterest for design inspiration whenever I have downtime.

What’s the technology Mancini uses that most consistently surprises and impresses clients?

Our visualization capabilities are astounding—and get better every single day—and our proprietary Toolbelt technology is groundbreaking. We use both as part of our immersive design process with clients and it’s cool to see their reactions each time we show them their future designs long before they’re built.

What is one piece of technology you wish existed today but doesn’t?

I know it’s really farfetched, but I wish teleportation technology existed so I could travel wherever I want instantly. Maybe a more realistic answer: fully self-driving cars.
