I worked with some top commercial brands when I was modelling – Vaseline, Pond’s, Colgate – and I was often flown to places like India to work with Bollywood celebrities. I never saw it as a long-term gig, though, and sure enough after two years, I ended up hating it. It felt like I needed to re-enter the real world – so I went back to Singapore to start my own boutique talent agency. Representing around 300 people, I worked with incredible brands during that time as well, including high-fashion brands like Gucci – but I realised quite quickly that the growth potential was finite. One day, after we’d introduced a production arm to the business, we won a contract with a cryptocurrency company. At the time, I had no idea what crypto or blockchain was, but the investment potential blew me away.
