What do you do and why do you do it?

Before coming to Barcelona, I was a media lawyer dealing with the disputes of the biggest stars in the music industry in London but I wanted to start my own business rather than advising others on how best to go about theirs. This is why I founded Kailani Ice Tea, a 100% natural ice tea with no added sugar made in Spain.
