In Harmony





Paul Smith



Perhaps the reason why Ewan kindly stopped by to be photographed, even though he was in a bit of a rush, is the fact that he believes in karma. “It encourages you to be respectful of others and be conscious of your own behavior,” he says. It comes as no surprise to us that Ewan is a big fan of good tailoring for work. “You spend so much time at work that I think you need to make the effort and investment.” This half-Japanese Canadian has been working in Singapore for 5 years, and he loves the nature of his work and the people he works with. “It feels like purposeful work that is making a difference,” he says. “And there are some good laughs along the way.” Nonetheless, he makes sure that he has time to spend with his three young boys. “Home life is really important to me. It’s a challenge, but I think I do a pretty good job of balancing life and work,” he says. “I draw clear boundaries and foster flexibility with my employer.” Perhaps the one thing that Ewan likes more than his work, apart from his family, is music. “Last year, I went to meet friends for the Stone Roses reunion gig in Manchester. It was epic,” he says. “It was also 24 years since the first time me and the same group of friends saw them in Glasgow. Close friends and great music…bliss.”
