BUILD­INGS TO BAUBLES

I grad­u­ated with a de­gree in in­dus­trial en­gi­neer­ing. One day, out of the blue, I won­dered what would hap­pen if I started my own jew­ellery busi­ness. I no­ticed fine jew­ellery in the Kuwaiti mar­ket was lack­ing; I couldn’t find any of my favourite brands such as Anita Ko, CVC Stones, and Venyx. Aubade was founded with the idea of bring­ing all of my favourite in­ter­na­tional brands to Kuwait. Once the busi­ness took off, it put a halt to my en­gi­neer­ing ca­reer.

GUILT TRIPS

I travel a lot for work but try to keep my trips short so I’m not away from the kids too long. But I do en­joy the trips, and love vis­it­ing Dubai as it’s lively, colour­ful and mul­ti­cul­tural.
