Vision

I live to create

For years I’ve put everything I am, every single day, into turning ideas and dreams—mostly my own—into reality. For me, the key lies in setting unlimited goals—driving toward a bar that keeps going higher. I want to always push myself to do more, be better, and never stop at satisfaction. Anything less means mediocrity. Whether it’s cars, motorcycles, commercial spots, television shows or homes, I oversee every aspect of a project; every angle and every shot. It’s incredibly demanding, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. What these projects all have in common is my absolute dedication to a hands-on, hand-build process. Some people call my approach “artisanal.” I call it doing things the way they should be done.
