ABOUT JAMES HOUSTON

MEET MICHAEL DIMOPOULOS

CO-FOUNDER, HEAD OF SALES & OPERATIONS

Working within the corporate sector for over three decades and successfully launching two start-up companies in Australia, Michael decided to explore his passion to work and live abroad. Two start-up opportunities as Co-Founder presented themselves within completely different industries but more aligned to his passion. Trusting his intuition, Michael moved to New York City in 2014 to launch both James Houston Design and MindSpaceDesign and to this day he has never looked back.

 

Everything he learned along the way has positioned Michael to these two ventures in the US. As a result he is now part of a global evolution, inspiring people to consider the relationship between their home environment, mind and life. He believes that by building an extraordinary culture, recruiting the best teams, and connecting with the best brands and retailers this is inevitable.

 

He spends his free time being healthy, exploring the world and manifesting his dream oceanfront home. He is passionate about food from around the world and enjoys reading about holistic personal development.

 

Michael Dimopoulos and James have been close friends for over 25 years after first meeting in Australia. The two have traveled to numerous countries together, sharing many extraordinary chapters and life-defining moments.

 

In one such life-defining moment, while Michael visited James in NYC, James asked if he would consider moving to the USA to help him launch both James Houston Design and MindSpaceDesign. The rest is history.

MEET MICHAEL FIORENTINO

CO-FOUNDER, HEAD OF DIGITAL AND MEDIA

Michael comes to us from the fast-paced advertising technology space, having held marketing positions at Innovid, Yahoo!, interclick, and [x+1] (now Rocket Fuel). During his time at Yahoo! Michael unified the sales and product marketing approach for Yahoo!’s online search, display, video, mobile, audience and publisher offerings, providing him with a holistic perspective of the online ecosystem between users, publishers and brands.

 

At Innovid, Michael led global marketing operations and helped to solidify Innovid as the leader in the connected TV and interactive video space. Michael’s work at [x+1] and interclick provided a deep-dive into the world of data, analytics and personalization at a time when the concept of Big Data was just being created. With a genuine focus on customer experience, Michael ensures that every interaction with MindSpaceDesign’s website, products and social communications is empowering, inspiring and helpful.

 

Equally passionate about technology, innovation and the power of conscious consumerism, Michael is dedicated to cultivating a meaningful and enjoyable relationship between MindSpaceDesign and its community of users and customers.

 

During his spare time he enjoys traveling, contributing to environmental causes, eating vegetarian food, and appeasing his limitless curiosity by researching every topic on the net.

 

Michael Fiorentino has known James for 8 years and is a personal friend. Michael and James met at a personal development workshop in 2007, both looking for a breakthrough in their lives. Michael had recently moved to New York City and at the time was struggling with his career path and living situation. He was ready to move back to his hometown, but was so inspired by James’ own story of struggle and success as a newcomer to New York that he chose to remain and create the life he desired. Within a few months, Michael had moved into a nice apartment, entered a healthy, positive relationship, and landed a job with more professional responsibilities and a higher salary.

 

In 2011, James and Michael began to develop the foundations of MindSpaceDesign and, three years later, Michael joined the company full time.
