About me
I am the founder and CVO of Erich’s Project. From 2016-17, in 2018, and from 2019-20, I’ve been working with Gucci in client-facing positions within different stores, but this does not define the path I am taking with Erich’s Project; hence we can have a chat about it, but this won’t appear on my profile. The relevant things happen here & now; and most recently, I took interior design courses and learned how to use VectorWorks ( 2D + 3D ), SketchUp ( 3D ), and how to design a commercial building to scale ( also residential, but this is less relevant for Erich’s Project at this point, but will be later ). I am eager to take things to a new level as I finally feel ready and equipped to launch my company. Exciting times ! I am currently teaching myself how to write a script for an upcoming show dubbed “Erich’s Project : The Series” which will showcase its importance in this world and society while also providing a solid portfolio for investors and founding members wishing to get involved. I’m in desperate need of a PA, latest for the entire year of 2023 full-time, open to traveling with me to and from meetings if our funding allows for it. I secured the first bit for next year ! Despite seeing myself in the visionary role of the company, and shaping how we establish our connections, partnerships, and more, I have a solid history of Management and Luxury Brand Management studies ( BSc + MA ), both with distinction. I don’t think it’s relevant to mention this, as this does not define what I currently do, yet it enables me to understand business practices deeply. Having worked for a global company like Gucci also offered me valuable insights, and having lived in 4 countries for my studies with ESCP exposed me to new cultures and views almost yearly. Join my team or member collective, and let’s change the world for the better. Erich’s Project - Manifest today for a brighter tomorrow. Current book recommendation : “Earth for All” - A report to the Club of Rome Blinkist score since 08/21 : 165 Books and counting Do you ever feel like an Imagineer ? Hit me up; we’ve got to talk ! Storytelling through attractions is one of the many parts of Erich’s Project that I enjoy working on, despite loving them all, as it is my life’s project. Have I mentioned that our team goes to Disneyland before a 1-month boot camp next year ? There we will live all attractions as they are intended to, then think about all the engineering and planning behind them, revisit the parks, and get a new view of them. I firmly believe that this aids creative and innovative thinking. “ Imagineering is a noun and a verb; an actual place and state of mine; a word, and world, that is made up but very real. It is dynamic, fluid, focused, messy, deliberate, casual, collaborative, cutting-edge, and old-school. We leverage our contradictions; we like to encounter the unexpected “, excerpt from the book “Imagineering” by The Imagineers. If I were to describe myself to someone that doesn’t know me, I’d say a mix of Walter Disney and Steve Jobs. With Erich’s Project, we will generate so much good in this world and actively enable positive change. Oh, and I said Steve Jobs, as I, too, am dependent on a uniform and have a grand vision and a lot of expertise in many fields, but wise enough to want to work with professionals that love what they do. Another fact : have you ever given earth scrapers a thought ? Well, get familiar with it. With our launch next year, we will introduce one of the most cutting-edge facilities boasting a plethora of innovative and technologically advanced features, including but not limited to : gravity energy storage, autonomous underground parking solution, connection by tunnel transportation system, farm building, interactive exhibition and rides on all membership levels, employee accommodation, internal taxation system to simulate our own economy ( examples being one pays xx% of salary for accommodation and xx% for food, which makes a salary always predictable, as we operate at constant rates, as the company is backed by its pool of affluent members ), private travel network, workshops at The Academy, and much more. Most interesting, though, we will be a case study for current and future generations under the direction of Erich’s Project : The Academy. Do you want to hear more ? Hit me up ;-) “ When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way. Have confidence in your ability to do it right. And work hard to do the best possible job. ” - Walt Disney
