I had the great pleasure to work with Pamela Thomas-Graham when she was at Credit Suisse, and I’ve recently published my first “luminary” guest post on her fascinating site, Dandelion Chandelier. Dandelion Chandelier shines a light on the rapidly evolving world of luxury and on wealthy individuals, illuminating their mores and mindsets, as well as their preferred products and experiences, all without getting stuck in the weeds.
