Aga is a realist, a pragmatist even. She discards what is not necessary, reducing life to the fundamentals. Aga collects sheep. This is no oxymoron, she says. Emotion, beauty, memory: these are the stuff of life. Liberate yourself from what isn’t necessary. Everything else? That centers you. She’s harnessing experience gathered during her undergraduate studies at Duke University, MBA at the Wharton School, and four years in investment banking on Wall Street to lead finance and operations at Upterior.
