Q: Which projects are you most excited about?
A: The Ikea project in Oak Creek. The amount of ancillary development will completely reshape the area. Plus, I love their meatballs.
Q: What is your favorite restaurant?
A: Pizza Shuttle. If you can’t get it at Pizza Shuttle, you don’t need it.
Q: What Made you choose Commercial Real Estate?
A: I took my first real estate course while studying in Shanghai. I was amazed at how quickly the developments moved out of the ground there and knew I wanted to be a part of the industry.
Q: What is your biggest takeaway from our NextGen Meetings?
A: While I do enjoy the great discussions with guest speakers, I think getting to know the other “NextGen’Rs” at the happy hours is most impactful.
Q: If you could have lunch with anyone in the world, who would it be?
A: Steve Sewart, Senior Vice President Colliers International. He’s so cool.
