"I was born and raised in Spainâ€™s sunny Canary Islands. My parents are Indian, and they moved to the Canary Islands in the late 1960s, so I had the privilege of growing up influenced by two wonderful cultures. I currently live in Indonesia, one of the worldâ€™s most vibrant economies and its fourth most populous nation, with over 250 million people and a thriving middle class. Jakarta is the eleventh city I have lived in, and I hope to experience new countries and cultures in the coming years.
I am a tech and fashion enthusiast and my current role allows me to be involved in both worlds. My motto in life is to live kindly and try to make at least one person smile every day. Outside my work, I spend a lot of time playing sports, which is something I have done since I was a child and has helped me develop character. Wherever possible, I try to help young entrepreneurs, as I made it to where I am today thanks to the influence of some incredible mentors, and I try to share as much of my experience as I can with anyone who is willing to listen. In todayâ€™s world, I believe all businesses need to have a social purpose, and as I progress in my career, I want to look for opportunities to support communities and crafts that we canâ€™t afford to lose through my work. I am fascinated by the role that technology is playing in our society, for good and bad, and try to keep abreast of all the latest trends. I am passionate about food, live music and travel, and I try to visit at least one new country every year."
