City: San Francisco

Profession: Founder and CEO of Kamedis

J.:You had an interesting journey — from your home in Tel Aviv to a Chinese medicine school in San Francisco to a job in China — before starting Kamedis, an herbal skin-care company that combines Chinese medicine with Western pharmacology and biochemistry.

I felt like I was entering the secret garden of ingredients. It was like magic.
