Our Story

Waves Puzzle Co. was founded by architect Benjamin Sachs and entrepreneur Cristina Ainoa after discovering their shared interest in architecture, social anthropology and the ways shapes affect our psyche and our daily lives! Together they are excited to find new ways to interact with this playful and ancient pastime, and reintroduce the art of puzzling.

Benjamin Sachs was born in Nashville, Tennessee and studied architecture at Yale University. Before co-founding Waves he worked with some amazing architecture firms designing a terra cotta skyscraper in New York, new conceptual projects for Zaha Hadid in London and groundbreaking houses with Belzberg Architects in Los Angeles.

Cristina Ainoa was born in Miami, Florida and is a first generation American. She studied music, acting, improvisation and story-telling in New York and Los Angeles, and has worked between New York, Los Angeles, London and Spain. Her background is in psychology, political advocacy and fine arts. She is co-founder of Waves and heads company-management and creative direction.

What we all have in common is a love for culture and an opportunity to enrich people's lives through joy, play and togetherness!
