With an MBA (Tulane) and two undergrad degrees in design, Sanford manages in a way that combines the operational precision and drive of an MBA with a keen eye for creative detail. He specializes in developing digital products that help small/mid-size companies make larger impacts in heavily saturated and highly competitive markets. His love for food and foreign cultures has inspired him to take his talents to the culinary realm.
Sanford is a self-described “tech geek” and foodie, and co-authors The Coolest Gadgets blog while chasing down the stranger side of global-regional cuisine. With a drive to constantly push the limits of his own pallet, Sanford has traveled the world and scoured NYC in search of the finest and most interesting cuisine. His greatest culinary conquests include sampling fugu (a potentially toxic Japanese pufferfish) in Tokyo, and rattlesnake in the American Southwest. With a critical eye towards design and 20 years of consulting under his belt, Sanford is always finding ways to improve restaurants. His love for the culinary arts combined with his talent for design has seen him help turn around struggling bars and restaurants all over NYC.
