Who we are


When we’re kids, the world tells us to dream big, but as we grow older, the world tells us to shrink—to be practical, take the safe route. At Co.create, we still dream like kids. We’re just kids who have the experience to execute like pros.

Sandra Di Capua, Partner

Sandra got her professional start in the restaurant industry working in the dining room at Eleven Madison Park. After quickly rising through the ranks from coat check to maitre d’ and project manager, she met Anthony and together they started Co.create NYC. Her dream is to bring big ideas to life. (And to open a kosher taqueria.) 

Since anything is possible, I’m going to . . . travel the world with my husband, daughter, and Co.create family, learning about how different cultures parent and play, and how they experience food.

A New Jersey native, Kara has studied art all over the world—mainly in Nova Scotia, Canada and a 2-year stint in London, England. She's now excited to be working at Co.create, using her art background to problem solve a wide variety of untypical tasks.
