My Story

After more than 20 years spent in the financial services (Boston Bank, Compaq Capital, Hewlett Packard Financial Services) and a pretty successful career, I decided to quit and start to invest on a new working life. It was 2006.

I felt the need to leverage on my ‘essence’: a sense for style and beauty, love for harmony and composition, a curiosity for people and a natural empathic attitude, supported by a strong will to learn, grow and succeed. And learn again. To give people more.

This is how my image consulting career started: I won the challenge and I discovered that my present job is ‘actually me’.
