He opened LMCC’s first Arts Center at Governors Island in 2009, and later managed its comprehensive renovation in 2018.

In addition to his professional duties, Diego is honored to serve on several Boards, including Manhattan’s CB3, ArtsNYS, the Vassar Club of New York, and the Greenburger Center for Social and Criminal Justice. He holds a double BA in Drama and Mathematics from Vassar College, is a proud alum of Stuyvesant High School, and earned a great deal of experience at Nonprofit Finance Fund where he performed financial and organizational analyses for clients nationwide.
