Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
The way I got into the career path is by loving cars. I have worked with cars and producing content with cars for about 10 years now. I started working on my own cars by adding parts and then posting on social media which I gained followers slowly by slowly. Then I started doing photography also which then I joined both together and made it a working combo. After shortly gaining a large following on Instagram, I started a YouTube channel and began vlogging. People love my content, the way I build my cars and drive them.
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
Ever since I started doing this, people will always message me asking for advice and a hand out which I try to help. I never thought I would be in this place that I am in, but it feels good. I also got a DM from a very famous person so I can help him with a question he had on one of my cars.
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
I would tell them to be consistent by posting on social media and to be interactive with followers. Responding to followers is the best thing you can do in gaining because people see that you’re responding, and they get happy that you did so they will follow and comment and try to get your attention.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
Yes. Damon from Daily Driven Exotics or DDE helped me gain some exposure. I messaged Damon and never got a response in the beginning. I saw him at a car show which he loved my car and personality, so the rest is history. We became friends and now he creates content which I am also a part of so that helps with my followings also.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
Yes. I always give to charity. The automotive industry is big with charity and cars, so I always attend charity car drives and give to help the less fortunate.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“If plan A doesn’t work, the alphabet has 25 more letters – 204 if you’re in Japan.” This is the quote I love because a lot of people will stop trying if something doesn’t work out. For me personally, I love this quote because it tells you that there are no excuses and there are always ways of getting something or making sure something works without quitting. I always say work hard, play harder which I live by this quote.
