Son of a first-generation immigrant who struggled to provide the life for his family that he dreamed of. A natural whiz at everything he touches, Rob grew up an athlete and an academic with his head in the stars. His 8-year career in finance enabled him to see the world firsthand in ways he only imagined as a child. Now, a passionate entrepreneur, Rob is the founder of the company Zaven Global, which he named in honor of his late father. Through his business journeys, Rob is turning his innovative vision into a valuable asset for the global travel and events industry and sharing his father's name with the world.
A native of Los Angeles who spent her formative years in the outskirts of Washington, D.C., Christina is endlessly curious with a surprising mix of passions. At home on the farm or in a Michelin star restaurant, she always brings her true self to the table. Christina is a perfectionist, a yogi, an academic, an equestrian, and an amateur chef, who, with a dash of spontaneity joined Rob as co-owner of Zaven Global to bring an out-of-the box approach to dealing with clients and curating events.
