Committee Member: Kelly Sueda
Hawaii - Art Collection Consultant
The best work advice Kelly Sueda ever got was to not just love what you do, but to LOVE what you do. And he does: as a consultant who helps clients build art collections, Sueda’s excellent taste comes into play every day, as he gets to meet “incredible and fascinating people.”

I think luxury is something that you feel the best doing, owning, or experiencing. It doesn’t need to be expensive to be luxurious. I find that often the most luxurious things are things money can’t buy.
