We had the good fortune of connecting with Thierry “Chichifoofoo” Delourneaux and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Thierry “Chichifoofoo”, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
I think taking risk have played a big role to my life and my career. I left the beautiful French caribbean island of Guadeloupe and my family at early age to pursue my dream and degree. Since then I have travelled the globe and I lived in France, Canada, USA, Singapore and Bermuda.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’m extremely fortunate to do a job that I don’t love but “ADORE”. I never feel that I’m working a single day. I’m very proud to be from Guadeloupe in shining in a country where opportunity is endless. I got to where I’m today by working very hard over the years with a lot of sacrifices. It was not easy sometimes because you spent a lot of time alone when you get to the top but I’m extremely blessed and very happy where I’m with all the challenges I overcame over the years. What I learned over the years is never stop dreaming, focus on you and no one else. I want to world to know that I’m just a simple guy from the island who never stop working hard. I’m just embracing elegance of art and life by creating my CHICHIFOOFOO brand

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Living in Arizona I will take my best friend to Grand Canyon, Sedona and explore all the beauty Phoenix offer. I definitely will take my friend to eat to The Mexicano, The Sicilian Butcher, Hash kitchen and Sicilian Baker knowing that I’m corporate for the group. ahahahah

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to dedicate this shoutout to my entire family brothers, sisters and mom who keep support all my dreams and keep me humble. Without their love and support I will not be where I’m today
