As much as I pride myself on building my business up from the ground, I've always had secret weapon: Sebastian Picasso. Over the years he's excelled as a husband, father, and co-founder of Apotheke. Frankly, I don't know what we'd do without him.
From starting our company garden to speed-shipping your Christmas orders, Sebastian never slows down. Except for this Sunday, when I make him take the day off and chill out by the pool (that he built).
I thought I'd take today to praise him to all my friends online, and let you meet the man behind the magic.
Sebastian, where are you from?
"Beunos Aires, Argentina!"
What's your favorite thing to do in your downtime?
"Going up to the country house with the family. I love a change in scenery, hearing the girls ask to go get milk at the farm warms my heart that they have different experiences and memories growing up."
What's your favorite one of our products?
"Charcoal Liquid Soap and Charcoal bar soap. Even though I have to stamp each soap individually."
What's your favorite way to stay fit?
"Jui-Jitsu at Gregor Gracie Jui-jitsu in Dumbo, can't wait for that to start up"
"This Old House"
Do you have a favorite song?
"Vamos en la playa is my summer jam with the girls- and I am a reggae guy all day."
As a trained chef, what's your favorite meal to cook?
"A true asado for friends and family..."
Best advice as a dad raising two wonderful girls?
"Be yourself, you are beautiful every day."
A man of few words.
I hope you got to know our wonderful Sebastian a little bit more, and if you have any kind words for him, be sure to leave them below!
