STARTUP SURVIVOR. DRONE PIONEER
CROWDFUNDING HACKER. GLOBE TRAVELER
I've always been trying to improve people's life, seeking for ideas that could change our way of living.
I've started with an innovative GoPro stabilizer for action sport lovers called SLICK.
It has brought to mainstream a new filming experience. Riders are now able to capture smooth videos hands free, and easily share professional films with their friends.
I first started a business in drone industry when I was 19, developed my own drones and stabilization camera heads mount to produce high quality video content for many industries as movies, extreme sports, advertising or TV series. I was the official 2013 Xgames' drone pilot.
I then realized that I was better at launching consumer product to the market, applied the 80/20 rule and focus on marketing.
Exploring the world? Yes, 52 countries and counting!
"Travel and create while you're young and able. Don't worry about the money, just make it work. Experience is far more valuable than money will ever be."
FOCUS ON ACTION

From $0 to $900,000 USD
After raising $450,000 on Indiegogo in 2015 for SLICK. I wanted to challenge myself in 2019 and launched KABUTO on Kickstarter. From shooting the video, designing the page for efficiency, finding the right influencers to finally raising $900,000 USD.
Proud to say I cracked the code of Crowdfunding.
Currently writing a book to help others.
Specialized in action filming. Car racing, risky flying, close up are my cup of tea. Don't ask me to film your wedding!
