The smell of na­ture — whether it’s that of the ocean or the crisp moun­tain air.

Who’s your role model as the per­fect pro­fes­sional? I gen­er­ally ad­mire those who fight for oth­ers, for ideas, and also peo­ple who save lives. The ones who ac­com­plish t heir dreams, who try to change things and shake up con­ven­tion. I have al­ways ad­mired au­dac­ity and per­se­ver­ance.

Your favourite in­dul­gence when you need a break from work. When I am in Dubai, I take a walk on the beach af­ter work. I need it to get rid of ten­sion and recharge my en­ergy. When I’m i n Europe, I go h i k i n g i n t h e moun­tains — that’s where I grew up, sur­rounded by na­ture. I get my most cre­ative ideas up there.

What is the last thing you usu­ally do be­fore you go to sleep? I read a book.

What is your great­est dream, pro­fes­sion­ally? I want good and healthy food to be­come as com­mon as junk food. My dream is to make Wild & the Moon an or­ganic and healthy Star­bucks.

Any ad­vice for as­pir­ing en­trepreneurs? Take risks, fol­low your in­stinct and work hard for what you want. The sky is not the limit, there are foot­steps on the moon…
