Her favorite article on Dornob covers a Brazilian artist, Amarildo Silva, who recycled old tires from landfills and turned them into dog beds for the stray dogs in his neighborhood.

Angela Sabrowsky | Junior Content Manager

Following that initial exposure into journalism, she became the managing editor at her award-winning community college newspaper.
Based in Los Angeles, Angela enjoys spending time on the West Coast with her family, whether it’s camping in the Sierra Nevada Mountains or crabbing in Washington’s Puget Sound on the 4th of July (an annual tradition for the past 20 years). Her favorite article on the site is about an architectural gem in Central California, which is a place she needs to visit more.
Andrew Corti-Cervantes | Associate Editor
Andrew Corti-Cervantes is an editor for Dornob with a passion for pushing boundaries. From a young age, Andrew’s family made it a point to immerse him in all kinds of experimental art including music, theater, cinema, and literature. He even had a little exposure to interior design around this time, frequently watching shows like Trading Spaces on HGTV with his mom.
Andrew eventually went on to study English Literature, Creative Writing, and Music History at the University of California, Los Angeles, graduating Magna Cum Laude in 2016. It was in college that he also found appreciation for another art form: architecture. Not only did he find himself mesmerized by the Romanesque Revival buildings that David Allison built on UCLA’s campus in the early 20th century, but he also made a point to start visiting other architectural gems around Los Angeles, including Frank Lloyd Wright’s Hollyhock House and Sumner Hunt’s Bradbury Building.
For the past four years, Andrew’s been using that love to revitalize Dornob’s editorial calendar, always in search of groundbreaking stories and awe-inspiring designs. One article he holds particularly close to his heart is Picasso of the Caribbean: José Rodríguez Fuster’s Surreal Wonderland. “Not only is the concept totally bizarre and surreal, which kind of automatically draws me in, but I love the idea of one man trying to spread positivity through his whole town using nothing but art. It makes me wonder what kind of world it would be if we all felt confident enough to share our creativity.”

Marc Catalan | Associate Project Manager
Marc Catalan is the associate technical project manager for Dornob. He went to California State University, Northridge where he earned a bachelor of science degree in computer science. As a project manager, Marc is responsible for delegating tasks and allocating resources where needed—something he is all too familiar with from his days as lead for many school projects. At the same time, Marc believes that technology should be designed to help make people’s lives easier and is always mindful of this when addressing issues for the site. Marc employs an empathetic approach to make sure the quality of projects are in line with the consumer’s needs and that his team is well-cared for.
In his spare time, Marc would sometimes draw up design layouts of his dream house using online tools or just pencil and paper. Admittedly, the look has changed over the years but the basics have remained the same. Marc dreams of a modest house of traditional Asian design with a natural facade of wood and rock surrounded by greens for the exterior. For the interior, a decor of familiar comforts that modern design offers combined with the geometric sleekness and function of contemporary.
One of Marc’s favorite articles on Dornob is the “‘Living Kitchen’ Transforms with Nanotechnology” as it opens up so many different questions. On one hand, the article shows off the endless possibilities of nanotechnology when applied to homes, but it makes you wonder how futuristic homes would be designed when everything you need can just magically come out of the floors, walls, or ceilings. Will we all just live in blank, white spaces with our homes constantly redesigning from our perceived needs? Even the act of developing a “cool, smart kitchen” (to oversimplify) can have such profound consequences in other aspects of life.
David Thomas | Web Developer
David Thomas is the web developer of Inhabitat who has a true passion for technology and enjoys playing open world adventure games. He started on Dornob in early 2012 as an intern, and has worked his way up to lead a small team of developers that maintains a small number of sites.
Using his own personal website, David experiments with different technologies and improvements that sometimes eventually transfer over to Dornob. One of his favorite features about Dornob is the clean and simplistic design. His favorite article from Dornob is about a robotic dog that reminds him of the robo dog from Recore. Even though the dog from Recore is much more advanced than the real robo dog, he finds it interesting that reality is catching up to the imaginary world.
Jason Pelmont | Videographer
Jason Pelmont is Dornob’s videographer. He believes good design and innovative design go hand in hand.
