Business owner + entrepreneur
Tino started her first business when she was 21 in mobile hair, beauty and skin care, as well as being an independent beauty consultant with Mary Kay Cosmetics. At this age she was doing her first year in university studying Aerospace Engineering. From the first time she saw number 11 Wind Street in Swansea, she fell in love with the building and had a clear vision of what she would like to see it become. Besides not having experience in the restaurant industry, from the day of her last exam she started her market research and educated herself in hospitality. Despite things not going to plan, Tino carried on and opened her doors to the public on November 28th, 2013. What may have seemed impossible is now a living reality. Tino is evidence that dreams do come true. If you believe you can then you will.
