"Another big influencer of mine is love. If you are not doing something because of love then what are you doing it for?"

Who are your biggest influencers and mentors personally and professionally?  The biggest influencers in my life would have to be my family and most of all my grandfather. Family is the most important thing in my life; each and every one of them pushes me every day to be the best I can be. My grandfather has been my role model since I was a very little boy. He would sit with me and watch me build, whether it be in a sandcastle in the sand, out in Sea Island, or something using my new Lego set. He was always there to tell me how amazing I was and let me know he saw something special in me. To this day, those memories push me to become a fraction of what he was and still is to me. 

Another big influencer of mine is love. If you are not doing something because of love then what are you doing it for? Money, fame, happiness? These things all come from having love in your heart and spreading that love to others by loving what you do. 

Three things that we should know about you? 1. I love art and design and anything that has to do with it. Beautifully flowing things make me happy and relaxed. 2. My dogs and my family are my life. 3. I love Atlanta, I believe in it, and I will make a difference in it.

What fuels your drive? I love design. My drive in life is to do what I love, so getting out there and getting to see all these different designs of homes. Seeing the different ways that people create their home to make it suit them, as well as hearing their thought process on how they came up with whatever design they want is truly fascinating to me. I love figuring out how to make things work and how to make something look the way I want. It’s all a big challenge for me. Every day I walk into a space that excites me. There is no greater feeling for me than seeing truly remarkable architecture and design especially if there is some good art mixed in there with it.

What's been your most successful approach to building business relationships? My approach to building business relationships has been to just be myself. I focus on not simply trying to get business or figuring out ways to make people use you and endorse your brand; instead, it is really just getting to know people and understanding their wants, needs, and goals in life by creating a relationship with them to help them achieve those goals. The recognition and business will come along with doing the right thing and helping people in any way you can. 

Your mantra? My Mantra is quite long. It is something I wrote for my beloved grandfather, John Portman. I wrote it on the night he passed away and it is an impression of all the knowledge he passed on to me. It is what I live by to honor him. 

Apple or Samsung? Apple all the way! They make their products user friendly and they have a great company that not only makes great products but also supports great causes and does a lot of good for the world. 

MotorCars of Atlanta is Atlanta’s leading name in high-end vehicles. Sending a powerful message with the perfect blend of luxury, passion, and performance!

What do you do for fun? My favorite things to do for fun are taking my two dogs, Tyson and Kodak (both Siberian Huskies), to new places and letting them explore while I ride my bike. I have made it a mission of mine to take them to every big waterfall I can find. They both absolutely love to swim and play on the rocks. It’s fun to drive them up to Connecticut where my amazing mother lives with my younger brother, Peter. I let them play in the snow while I get to spend quality time with my family. 

When I have some free time, I love spending it with my three brothers, Peter, Sabu, Julien, and my older sister Penn. They are all so uniquely interesting in different ways so it’s really amazing getting to spend time with them regardless of what we do. I also love to paint and sculpt with clay whenever I get the chance, but that can be challenging because I am quite messy when it comes to paint.

What legacy do you want to leave behind? I want to leave the world a better place than I came in to.
