As a society people don't talk about money enough in the right ways, and if you want to build a creative life understanding how money works is super important.

Prior to founding Studio Rodrigo, he was the creative director for Method, NY. He lives in Brooklyn between a nondescript federal prison and a large victorian cemetery with his wife and two small but growing children.

Ritik Dholakia is lead strategist and co-founder of Studio Rodrigo, helping start-ups, non-profits, and tech companies with product, positioning, and brand strategy. Prior to founding Studio Rodrigo, he was a principal at design consultancy at Method, product managed a social networking start-up, and conducted early research on environmental footprinting. He loves art, food, beer, traveling, and soccer.
