My BMW Ultimate Driving Experience

I love cars and have always loved driving them in beautiful places across the world.

I have previously driven the Amalfi Coast on Italy, the Pacific Coast highway in California, the road to Hana in Maui, and off-road in Oahu.

My love of cars and driving recently brought me to participate in the BMW Ultimate Driving Experience.

It was incredible! Here are some of the beautiful cars that have driven:

Landmarks Around The World Honor Paris After Tragic Events

In lieu of my most recent post where I honored the memories of those lost in 9/11, I thought it was only fitting for my next post to honor those we lost in the recent tragedy in Paris. Above, you can see world landmarks lighting up in show of unity with France following the deadly atrocities. It is touching and remarkable to see the globe come together in dark times, and while we all wish that times like these didn’t happen in the first place, it is nice to see the outpouring of support that follows tragedies like this one.  

Never Forget: Remembering 9/11

Last week, on the 13th anniversary of the September 11 Attacks, I snapped a few pictures in New York. I felt compelled to share them here. Never forget.

Memories: Remembering Joan Rivers

Exactly two weeks ago today, Joan Rivers passed away. Joan was a board member for God’s Love We Deliver, and upon her passing, we received a heartfelt notice from the organization’s President and CEO. The email made me  consider my own memories, and reflect on a great encounter I had with her:


I met Joan Rivers three years ago. Joan was a driving force in helping raise funds and promote God’s Love We Deliver. I was driving her friend’s Mercedes Benz. She was having dinner with Joan at Amaranth on East 62nd Street. After dinner, I offered to drive Joan home. She turned me down and said she would walk home with her friends. So, I was turned down by the legendary comedian. When I offered to drive her home for the second time, she said she would race me home. I drove the Mercedes around the block. And Guess what? The 78 year old woman won, and was in her house before I rounded the corner.

Joan, you meshuganah hundt, we will truly miss you!

En Blanc Dinner

At the end of Summer, I attended an awesome dinner party in New York’s Rockefeller Park. The event, En Blanc, began in Paris 25 years ago, and is celebrated in several cities all over the world. I had a great time! Below are just a handful of selected images from the event. Read more about it here.

Update to Mr. Di Napoli

I just wanted to provide an update concerning the legacy of Mr. Di Napoli. I wanted to let you all know that it was with pleasure that we made a donation in Mr. Di Napoli’s honor, to the  USDAN Center for the Creative and Performing Arts in Wheatley Heights, New York.
