OUR TEAM

Meet the Team

“The most important measurement in a successful organization is its staff and the level of positive passion about the organization. Our crew is comprised of board members, members and volunteers, some of the best champions for innovation.

Let me tell you more about the team." 

Ignacio Felisari

Design Director

 

“A graphic designer and fun! Ignacio loves humor; he can’t go to a restaurant without secretly critiquing the menu design! His passions are, but not limited to, art, business--anything Apple, cool, and interesting. A techie at heart who would rather study a pattern in ones shirt than listen to trivial conversation. A business mind with a touch of idiosyncrasy who is in tune with pop culture & breaking news. Both eccentric and a consummate master of creative genius, channeling his relentless passion, realizing the vision and the organization's mission. His strategic vision and creative flair--coupled with a brutally honest and obsessive personality--drive Art for Evolution's goal to reclaim a Green authenticity. In his spare time Ignacio can be found traveling somewhere in the world, creating and always in contact!”


 

Julio Rey

Development Director

 

Julio grew up in Argentina, and after living more than 30 years in the USA, he looks at life a little differently. He doesn't see the normal obstacles that life puts in our way and shy away like most of us do. From the beginning of the project, Julio is continually learning, growing and reaching higher!”
