My objective for my clients is to work with them on their core wish and to then use my skills to explore the prism of possibilities. Each ambition that develops into a project should be ambitious; for this we need to move beyond our limits. The intention is to create the best of all possibilities, and for this the arrow of ambition must be precise and aimed far beyond the target.
