Short company description:

Aria: Despite divisive political rhetoric, we believe that environmental stewardship could be the most uniting issue of our time.

Global Cooling Productions brings hearts and minds together to regenerate our ecosystems and create a cooler, healthier world.

From scientifically sound, mission driven storytelling and entertainment to targeted conversations with change-makers, we are crossing political divides, creating positive change and shaping popular culture.

We bring people together to make healing the planet fun.

Bud: 35 years Research including numerous public & private industries (ex. SUNY at Buffalo/Roswell Park Cancer institute to Boeing/MOOG).
Patents & prototype devices for Decontamination & Sterilization of solids and liquids including medical & environmental (air & water). Why am I in Florida? Answer is Florida’s environmental water is contaminated & “sucks”

How do you define success?

Aria: I am very impact driven, so hearing from people I have impacted means a great deal to me. Whether it is from scientists who are grateful for helping them to simplify and translate the science for a wider audience, or conservative friends who tell me that Thanks to my content, they are wanting to get more involved in climate action, or consultancy clients Ive are grateful for impactful conversations I’ve been having with policy makers on their behalf, this feedback means a great deal to me.

Bud: What have you done today to improve tomorrow.

If you could be remembered for one thing, what would it be?

Aria: The creation of Revolution Earth – which I hope will help inspire the cultural and systemic changes needed to restore a healthy climate.

Bud: My three beautiful, intelligent daughters

What are your biggest goals in the next 12 Months for your business?

Aria: I have recently started working under a fiscal sponsorship with We All Need Food and Water, a non-profit organization, which should enable me to start receiving larger donations. Working with them, I need to raise enough fund to pay a support team for regular content production. And most importantly I aim to solidify my team for my TV series, revolution earth and get it greenlit for production..

Bud: Turning the research, prototypes, patents, etc. to a university engineering or environmental science department for students to run with the new photonics technology (SIAD or Synergistic Isogenous Active Decontamination)
