The show is mainstream, high energy and completely original. His productions are filled with exciting vignettes taking performance art to new levels. Trompe L' Oeil, Mode Art, Artos a surrealistic experience…His after dinner show is taking him to the extreme. Carving a one ton hunk of play dough and turning it into Michelangelo's sculpture of David, painting upside down hanging by a rope on fire, creating a painting of the Mona Lisa blindfolded, or using a volunteer from the audience as his paintbrush to create a rendition of your logo.

In a new keynote program, his topics are: "facing adversity in today's business" and "the survival spirit of the creative mind." He speaks to corporate groups about his extreme travel and life experiences and creates a parallel with the business climate of today. As a pioneer of aerobics in Europe, he took a box of flyers and turned it into a successful chain of aerobics studios which he later sold to buy a sailboat. He then spent the next seven years traveling around the world rock climbing in Patagonia and the Himalayas; paragliding from the top of Mont Blanc; scuba diving in the seven seas, all the while painting thousands of paintings to support his travels. His challenges have taken him from sailing through typhoons to fighting pirates off the coast of Brazil and once drifting on a broken windsurfer for 72 hours on the open Caribbean Sea.
