Q:How would you describe your lifestyle and how does it influence your work?
A:I like contrast and try and split my time between beach and the city. It keeps me balanced and stops me getting bored.By escaping at the weekends it keeps my mind focused and helps me have perspective in my work.
 
Q:What would you say is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
A:Working in entrepreneurial team of amazing and dynamic people and watching a business grow from nothing into something special. I also love the international aspect and working with people across many cultures.
 
Q:Coming from a lawyer background, how would you see yourself the transition being a CEO?
A:It was natural. I was a music lawyer, represent artists and musicians, record labels and entrepreneurs. In doing so I had to determine the best way to improve the commercial interests of my clients. I am now doing the same thing but for a fashion brand.
 
Q:Where did the entrepreneurial spirit that you have come from?
A:My father is an architect and always had his own business. Maybe that contributed. Otherwise I've always seen opportunity around me and could never watch it be wasted.
 
Q:Where is this remarkable career headed you think?
A:I love the fashion business I am in. I also love the changes that the industry is going through, the power of technology within it and the influence of globalisation. I hope my career continues to involve building world class businesses that touch on all of these exciting areas.
 
Q:What are your plans for the future, both personally and professionally?
A:To stay balanced, objective and happy. Which involves doing a job I love, spending as much time with my family as I can and surfing at the weekends!
 
Q:Have you ever been to China? What are your general impressions?
A:Several times. I am still learning about the cultures there and it's people. But so far I am impressed by the fearless spirit the Chinese have for invention and business, the arts and life in general. I look forward to discovering more.
 
Q:If you could give any advice to a young Chinese entrepreneur, what would it be?
A:Be bold and courageous. But also do something you love. China has so many opportunities. The key is to focus on the ones you really believe it.

Q:你会怎么样评价自己的生活方式,它又是如何影响你的工作?

A:在一个让人惊喜和充满活力的创业团队中工作,看着企业从一无所有到成长为一个特别的存在。我也很喜欢国际化,与许多不同文化背景的人合作。
 
Q:从律师的背景转变成一个CEO,你会怎么看待自己的转变?
A:这是很自然的。我是一个音乐的律师,代表了艺术家和音乐家,唱片公司和企业家。在这方面,我不得不决定提高我客户的商业利益的最佳途径。我现在在做同样的事情,但是是对于一个时尚品牌。
 
Q:你的创业精神的来源是什么?
A:我的父亲是一名建筑师,总是有他自己的事业。也许是这个原因。不然就是我一直看到我身边的机会,而我永远无法看着它被浪费。

Q:对于你个人的和专业的未来,你有什么打算?
A:保持平衡,客观和快乐。这当中包括坚持做我热爱的工作,花尽可能多的时间陪伴我的家人,和在周末上网娱乐!
 
Q:你去过中国吗?你对它总体的印象是什么?
A:去过几次。我仍然在学习有关中国的文化和了解它的人民。但到目前为止,中国人对发明和商业,艺术和人生的无畏精神给我留下了深刻的印象。我也期待在未来可以发现更多。
 
Q:如果你可以给年轻的中国企业家提供一些建议,那会是什么?
A:大胆和勇敢,并且做你喜欢的事情。中国有那么多的机会。关键在于你要专注于那些你真正相信的事情。
