The Luxury of Gratitude


Every time I step into a great car, I am thankful to take the wheel of a beautifully designed vehicle performing in amazing locations.

That humble moment of gratitude is one I cherish ” for the car, the engine and the vast open space.

Imagine for a moment you’re in a 550hp vehicle, with legal permission to go as fast as you can  ” what do you do?

Stop, breathe and keep filming the gorgeous red leather interior.

Trust me, I did hit an impressive speed in the new Porsche Cayenne Turbo, but I was not about to reset the tripod support to burn topnotch rubber. Although if I were in a race, on that dry lakebed, I’d remember that horsepower is everything.

Power like that is exhilarating. We arrived on location before dawn, leaving LA at 3am. Our actor’s first task was to drive the Cayenne in long, wide curves ” as fast as he could. Coming out of hair, makeup and wardrobe, he looked barely awake. After the first take? The expression on his face was priceless!


I’ve never seen a grown man with a bigger grin on his face. He couldn’t stop smiling after that drive, full of fresh energy and excitement.

This Thanksgiving holiday skip the Starbucks. Wake up and drive.
