George White Chief Innovation Officer at Cantina Consulting


As Chief Innovation Officer at Cantina, George is responsible for guiding Cantina's innovation efforts as well as working with clients on building game-changing products. He has spent most of the last 25 years working to make technology and design that matters. To accomplish this, he wears many hats. As a developer and a designer, George lead teams through complex and sometimes challenging projects, and act as a resource for clients. 

Some of George's major projects while at Cantina include the Appy-winning Putnam Investments FundVisualizer, and helping LINK AKC launch its first consumer connected product. Before Cantina, he developed a strong understanding of publishing through the lens of technology during his time at McGraw-Hill and Thomson.

George is actively involved in the maker movement through networking, peer-led workshops, community outreach and shared learning to help others. Exploring the intersections of technology and human expression, George puts his experience to work on projects that utilize 3D printing, CAD models, and microelectronics to execute on my ideas in customized connected things, electronic toys, home automation, and quantified self.
