"Dario, thanks again for presenting, that was amazing. I can tell you we have had many speakers in this class over the past few months and none had anywhere near the impact that yours did! The students couldn't stop talking about it. You made the subject of design entrepreneurship very approachable and relevant. I think we have to find a way to get together, it seems a collaboration of some nature is in order. You articulated so many of the things floating around in my head it was a catalyzing experience."  - Scot Herbst, Designer & Faculty | San Jose State University
"Dear Dario, on behalf of CDI, I want to thank you for traveling to China, to make such impressive presentation, and to have created so much fun for all of us! Your professionalism and your accomplishment in the industry have left deep impressions on all of us! In addition, we really treasure our friendship, your high spirit, your professionalism and your vivid characters brightened up our days, and made our time together unforgettable! I, with Koko, Joey and Jason, feel so honored to have you all in China. In the future, if we can be of any help no matter in China or in the US., please always feel free to let us know. We cannot wait to be your host again!" - May Ho | Partner, China Operation | CDI Lifestyle Group
"Dario - Your lecture last October at CSULB has lead to four students successfully funding a project through Kickstarter! Thanks again for sharing your path and lessons learned. You've made a big difference in their lives."
- Debra George IDSA | CA State University Long Beach
"Dario: It was such a pleasure to coordinate your visit and enjoy your enthusiasm and love for "creating!" You were so inspirational in all your presentations, but I feel strongly that your candid and heartfelt responses in the moderated Q & A will affect changes in the lives of many. Thank you for sharing your passion with us. I believe you have several hundred more new fans and friends!"​​​​​​​
- Wendy Harris - ASID CKE Department of Interior Design | BYU University

"Dario: I want to take this opportunity to personally thank you for participating in our lecture series this semester. You have left a lasting impression on all of us. In addition to the students, we had many professionals in attendance that night. Your dynamic presentation style really woke us up to new opportunities -- we are still buzzing about it. Because of you, and our other lecturers, our school is becoming a gathering place for designers. The momentum is building and I am hearing more and more people comment on how great it is to have an active community again. Thank you for supporting CSULB, IDSA-LA and the Los Angeles design community."​​​​​​​
Dave Teubner - IDSA. Professor CSU Long Beach 
"I had the pleasure to work with Dario in a highly successful funded project at Art Center with GE Healthcare for which he was one of the lead faculty. I was very taken, not only by Dario's mentorship of the students, but by his leadership in a highly regarded faculty team and with a number of high level GE reps and international development experts that were invited to offer critiques of the student work. Dario is of course an exquisite designer and one very attuned and in sync with the larger issues that affect the design practice today. I have the highest regard for him." 
Mariana Amatullo - Design Matters Director, Art Center College of Design
