Q. What is your number one business goal to accomplish this year?

Q. What do you have going on that you’d like to share?
Art Rapture has expanded into the web3 market and through a strategic move, we now own a significant stake in Rapture Labs, a new web3 company whose primary focus is on achieving rapture through digital experience (NFTs, GameFi, DeFi, Metaverse)
Q. Where do you see yourself in five years? How do you envision your future?
In five years I want Art Rapture to own an original Rothko painting.
Q. What is your favourite thing about what you do in your career and why?
My favorite thing about my career is being around art, artists and other creatives. It brings me great joy to transfer profits from my company to acquire exceptional artwork with the hopes of building a legacy collection.
Q. Do you have a mantra or phrase you live by? What is it?
My mantra in life is: “If you don’t ask, you don’t get.” In other words, put yourself out there, ask the hard questions, value yourself and your time. Ask for commitment and results will follow.
