Jason: Founder, Builder & Host
"Your future is now" ~ Jason
Jason, grew up in Mississauga, Ontario Canada. Born to a musician mother and a carpenter father, two free thinking, loving parents that helped mold Jason into a very well rounded individual. He was always encouraged to freely express himself whether verbally or by dying his hair whatever colour/shaving half his head, but his parents made sure education (knowledge) was number 1.
Jason was always artistic and would draw comic book characters growing up. Jason also enjoyed karate, crafting/ stain glass projects and most of all building with wood. Jason would follow his father's footsteps and pursue carpentry and has continued to work in the field for over 15 years.
After meeting Sofi, his life changed and he embarked on collaborating with their ideas to create unique products and build entrepreneurship.
Sofi: Founder, Fashioner & Host
"He who works with his hands is a labourer. He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman. He who works with his hands, his head and his heart is an artist." ~ St. Francis of Assisi.
Sofi was born in Guatemala City and following the death of her grandmother, Sofi and her young mother moved to Toronto, Ontario, when she was 5. Sofi was always quite artistic and drawing always came as second nature to her. She started drawing as soon as she could hold a pencil in her hand and her artistic abilities stemmed from her very talented composer/musician/artist grandfather and also her uncle.
At the age of 20, Sofi tried her hand with a paint brush and began to paint using acrylics. Throughout the years Sofi would learn how painting gave her a voice and a focus that built confidence to show her work to others. In 2010, Sofi began teaching art classes from home, which was the successful beginning of her entrepreneurial platform.
