Designer's portrait

30, Design Amateur
Curriculum Vitae / Resume
  New York City (USA)  
  Repair Tech  
  University Graduate (B.A.)  
  No professional experience as a designer.

I have worked for a non-profit cultural organization doing marketing and translation, in retail sales, for the US department of commerce, in the financial sector, and currently I build and repair industrial machinery, though I wouldn't want to make a career of any of these things.
 
  I have always loved to draw, and I dreamed of being an architect but I realized at some point along the way that I just liked the idea because I thought it sounded prestigious when in actuality I have no interest in buildings so the undertaking seemed too overwhelming if I didn't love it.

One day a light bulb turned on in my head that my love for cars could be combined with my passion for design and suddenly I had a new very specific and meaningful life goal to pursue.

The car I saw that changed everything for me was a concept called the Saab 9-X Griffin. After I saw this beautiful complex and unique car, I knew that I had to be a part of the world of car design.

I can speak some Japanese but I am not Japanese. In the near future, I want to enter Tokyo Communication Arts school for Car Design.

In my opinion the most beautiful cars are made by Alfa Romeo (33 Stradale, Pandion, Montreal, 4C), Bertone design house (Bat 11, Mantide, Jaguar B99), Aston Martin (DB9, DBS One-77, Vantage, Vantage Zagato), and Lamborghini (Murcielago, Reventon, Embolado, Toro 690-4, Countach, Aventador.)

I drive a beautiful 6 speed manual 2004 Saab 9-3 Aero in Espresso.

I use the name 'Leotta and Barbagallo' for my designs in honor of my grandfather and my uncle who taught and encouraged me to draw.

I describe my style as 'Blade Runner Chic.' I enjoy the bleak post apocalyptic vision of the 21st century as it was described in cinema of the 1980s. I like very boxy, industrial, gritty and layered, unrefined surfaces. I like to say that my designs are 'what the people of yesterday would drive tomorrow.'

Outside of car design, I draw all sorts of things. I also really like music and write some of my own. I'm very into movies, movie reviews, and comic books. My favorite auteur is Charlie Kaufman. I have designed characters for my own comics and basic premises but unfortunately I'm not much of a plot and dialogue writer.
