Meet Steven, the owner of Clean Air Cab, I am always looking for ways to innovate and push the taxi cab industry into the 21st century with my eye on technology, convenience, and eco friendliness.  In doing so I am also passionate about philanthropy, thus I have a charity cab portion of my fleet where we put money back into our community one fare at a time.  We have developed this nation’s only triple bottom line business model in our industry where our philosophy is People, Planet, Profit…in that order where all business decisions and direction flow through this filter.  We are proud to also be the only carbon neutral cab company operating in the southwest.

The perfect day would be…

waking up early, getting in a set of waterskiing, barefooting and jet skiing at the lake, then hustling over to the race track by midmorning and strapping into a race prepared Porsche 911 to rip off a few hot laps.  Jumping out of the racecar, being placed on a parade float; being the headliner of the Indianapolis F1 race weekend parade and then breaking for a light lunch at the rim of the Grand Canyon.  Right after lunch being flown over the Canyon and strapping on parachute…Jumping…landing on a 60 acre skid pad with Ken Block already warming up his gymkhana prepared Ford Focus ready for me to get dizzy for an hour, immediately afterward running to the airfield to get into my brother-in-laws f-16 to perform a flyby of my office, from there getting a ride in a 2013 Lamborghini Avantado changing halfway through the drive into a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder on our way to the Royal Palms Alvadora spa for a massage and catching dinner at Mastro’s Ocean Club.
