For Jack, working alongside individuals from a variety of backgrounds as well as having the opportunity to quench his thirst for knowledge are just two of the aspects he enjoys most about his role.
“I enjoy building relationships with both my clients and the industry contemporaries. I love being involved in the aesthetic industry, learning about the various procedures and products available on the market”.
Jack is a fan of fine wines and medieval art; he also has a passion for fitness and goes to the gym several times a week in order to push himself beyond his limits. His personal motto is: “Do not let anybody tell you that the sky’s the limit when there are footprints on the Moon”
