Allegra Crespi comes to NVM with an appreciation for emerging technologies and a love of classical aesthetics. Born and raised in Paris, Rome, and New York by a family with deep roots in the fashion industry, the importance of art, beauty, and craftsmanship was impressed upon her at an early age. Prior to founding NVM, Allegra worked in creative consulting and studied sociology at Columbia University. She currently resides in New York with her Chocolate Lab Nova.

Martin Griswold is compelled by a fascination with the history of technology, specifically its subtle impacts on design and culture. He brings to NVM technical skill honed in his previous work as a physicist and an abundance of trivia on the history of bicycles and shipping containers. Before founding NVM, Martin earned his PhD in physics at Princeton University. He currently lives in California.
