He has risen to the top of the pack among his peers by constantly challenging himself to create different types of projects. His message to the fans is that, “ I am 100% real . I was a fan of Adult before I came in the biz. I worked in an Adult retail outlet, so I watched lot of content.

My goals were to make superior and distinct product, set the standards high and blaze a trail for others to follow”. That philosophy has made him one of the most awarded Directors in Adult Entertainment.
