Q: Which projects are you most excited about?
A: The 2nd street corridor in Walkers Point/Fifth Ward has been exciting with all of the new restaurant concepts emerging in recent years. Most, if not all, have been local operators so I am excited about the potential for Chicago (and other cities) foodies to infiltrate and make their mark whether it be Walkers Point, the Third & Fifth Wards or even downtown. Additionally, I am excited to see national box retail surface at Freshwater Plaza since that will be a first for the area.
Q: What is your favorite restaurant?
A: No one restaurant specifically. I am interested in anything that blends foreign cuisine with American dining culture.
Q: What Made you choose Commercial Real Estate?
A: At the time, I was living and working in Denver. Having witnessed all of the changes to the city and metro areas throughout my tenure, my curiosity was peaked. Milwaukee was just starting to heat up in terms of revitalization so I wanted to take part in the hometown action. I have always been fascinated by real estate and how the commercial segment plays such an important role in giving a city, suburb, etcetera a sense of personality.
Q: What is one word that comes to mind when you think of CARW?
A: Connection. CARW does a fantastic job incorporating and connecting so many of the different business segments within the industry.
Q: What is your biggest takeaway from our NextGen meetings?
A: Personally, I gain the most out of hearing other people’s stories. How they got involved in the business, their successes/failures and advice. One speaker specifically really made an impact in terms of helping me think differently, smarter, faster.
Q: If you could have lunch with anyone in the world, who would it be?
A: Tom Brady (still a die-hard packers fan, don’t worry).
