Q: How would you describe your leadership style? Behzad :
I make it my mission to create and carter environments for my patrons and collaborators that best promote their defining qualities, and provide them with the freedom to explore, express and self discover wherever possible. I never want someone to walk away feeling like a project was a waste of a time, or that their contribution wasn't fully realized. I'm passionate about helping people define their own brand, and promoting it alongside my own.
