This 26-year-old hit the entrepreneurial playground running. As someone, he says, who never settles for what is expected, Michael aims to bring change to the local fashion scene, striving to introduce new concepts to the market and his generation. At such a young age, Michael founded the homegrown Ronnie & Joe Optical Salon, a premium independent eyewear destination with over 35 exclusive brand partners and became the offcial franchisee for Adidas Originals in the Philippines. On top of that, he opened the award-winning (also local) boutique, Commonwealth, specialising in select international menswear and footwear. He has big plans up his sleeve over the next few years starting with a lot more expansions, global collaborations, and partnerships.
His passion: His work and creating something disruptive and culturally relevant for his generation.
