Originally from the Philippines, Luigi moved to Los Angeles after high school and graduated from Cal Poly Pomona as an Electrical Engineer.
Although he enjoyed the engineering field, he quickly realized he needed to be in a much more creative environment and helped start The Design People – a web design company established in 1999 – whose main focus was to serve the real estate industry in the United States.
Since its inception, The Design People has grown from a 3-person office to a multi-national company servicing thousands of clients from their offices in Los Angeles and Manila.
Currently, Luigi is a Board Member for both The Design People and August 99.
In his free time, he also consults with small businesses and startups on operational strategies.
