Growing up in 5 countries across 3 continents Rezi had, from a very young age, a deep creative side and interest in performing arts. “I loved anything that had a performance aspect to it” he says. From dancing Michael Jackson in front of his whole elementary and high school on numerous occasions, sketch comedy, imitation and making voices he felt a way that left him wanting more. “This was one way I got to hang out with the cool kids” he jokes.
“When I moved to Canada I did not know what was possible so I went the "traditional" immigrant route by going to university and getting a respectable job especially since my parents had sacrificed so much to leave our country for a better future for their kids. Soon I realized however that a traditional corporate desk job was not for me so I landed into an entrepreneurial venture with my wife’s family.” Rezi started at the ground level and built himself up to the Director of Corporate Sales & Business Development dealing with C-level execs in the most prestigious hospitality properties across North America. “That experience was truly incredible. When we sold the business in 2018 however I had been part of this collective vision for so long that now I it was time to act on my personal vision. Now in my second act and with an amazing and international experience behind me I am revisiting my original passion and am using what I have gained in all my years into my performance.” This performance has landed Rezi some incredible International partnerships like Emirates Airlines, VISA Inc, Hasbro and Maersk to name a few. “I just love dropping names like it’s no big deal while I scream like a Shawn Mendes Superfan on the inside” he laughs. That raw pleasure that you get from that very simple creative process has never left him. The one thing that has changed is the tools that he uses to nourish it.
Now, as a father of 2 and a husband, he considers himself blessed for being able to blend his passions with his work.
The ‘What’ and the ‘How’ are very necessary parts of the business, but more than ever it is the ‘Why’ that keeps Rezi doing what he does.
