Collective insight

Where innovation is born.

While we all bring a unique experience and perspective, the collaborative principle extends to our team of professionals at Belli, where our staff works together to produce the most innovative ideas and designs through teamwork. We work hard to be good at what we do and have fun doing it.

Joy and imagination creates the driving force behind Lino’s pursuits. Community-building, sharing fine food and conversation with friends, and orchestrating his team’s enthusiastic energies are just a few of the things that motivate him. Interpreting your wildest dreams for the space that motivates you is another!

The only thing preventing David from racing some classic machine across water, land, or sky every day of his life is the fact that he’d leave his favorite things behind — People, and the great satisfaction that he receives from serving them. In addition to his clients here at Belli Architectural Group, David has served local residents in the Monterey Bay area in his role as board chair of Ag Against Hunger.

Google “grace under pressure” and a photo of Cari will appear somewhere in page-one results: she simply doesn’t sweat the small stuff. No matter the deadline, or the most exacting demand, Cari’s innate sense for the effortless marriage of form and function drives everything she cooks, wears, and designs! Where does Cari sweat? YMCA bootcamp and volunteering as an organizer of the Salinas Valley Half Marathon!

Passionate about Family, Faith, Architecture, and Sports (“Go Lakers!!”) Ismael understands that there are two ways to “cheat” the normal human lifespan: travel to see how others live and are interpreting this human experience, and creating something worthy of leaving behind.

When she’s done with her workday, you will find Nicole spending time baking, doing crafts, sewing or almost anything, if it means being creative and using her hands. Nicole contributes to the friendly and positive atmosphere at Belli, and she takes that same enthusiasm to the many 5K walks and fundraisers she participates in around Monterey County.
