Tell us a little about yourself
Besides setting up a VC, I used to be a partner in a blockchain advisory firm, a renewable energy consulting firm, and a family office trader. That aside, in my free time, my idea of unwinding is cooking up a mean meal for my friends/family.
What’s your idea of beauty?
Beauty is compassion, strength.
What do you like about the Infinity Palette?
The ability to blend different pigments, helps when I’m going straight from the office for a dinner, thus allowing a day to night look!
What is your idea of conscious beauty?
My idea of conscious beauty is a holistic functioning palette designed with sustainably sourced materials, reusable/recyclable packaging, yet diverse in its use!
