What is your proudest achievement to date?

Marrying my beautiful wife who without her support and belief none of this would be happening. Love always wins! Also I love watching people I have trained running their own businesses successfully, enjoying life and the rewards of hard work and skill.

Who inspires you in the industry and why?

Well I admire Vidal Obviously because although his work was amazing he really was innovative business wise. He took something from nothing. Product line, academy, celebrity profile. He was amazing. In modern times it’s probably Robert Lobetta. He told me once “not to see hair as 140000 individual pieces of hair but as a fabric.”

What is your favourite food?

Any food cooked with love and shared with good friends and family. If i had to choose one though it would be an Italian sea food pasta dish eaten in Milan.
