Q: Which projects are you most excited about?
A:I am most excited about the new Bucks arena and entertainment district. I think it’s an exciting time to be in Milwaukee with Giannis leading the team. I am also excited about the new BMO Tower development. The building is going to look very attractive.
Q: What is your favorite restaurant?
A:There are so many restaurants throughout Milwaukee. If I am dining close to home then my wife and I enjoy going to Cooper’s Hawk. They have great food and wine. Otherwise I love going downtown for brunch and sitting outside on a patio somewhere.
Q: What Made you choose Commercial Real Estate?
A: Coming out of college, I got into banking, spending time in commercial lending, credit underwriting and loan portfolio management. The experiences I gained while working in banking has allowed me to develop a strong interest in commercial real estate; more specifically I wanted to have an impact on helping change Milwaukee by bringing my banking knowledge and relationship management skills to a strong real estate developer in the area.
Q: What is one word that comes to mind when you think of CARW?
A: Relationships. Since joining CARW I have developed a great number of relationships with local business professionals. The various CARW events have also given me the opportunity to meet and share experiences with other industry experts in the community.
Q: What is your biggest takeaway from our NextGen meetings?
A: I would say taking what I’ve learned from the panelists each month and implementing that knowledge into my everyday routine at work.
Q: If you could have lunch with anyone in the world, who would it be?
A: That’s an easy one. I would have lunch with Brady, Gronk and Edelman. I think our conversations would involve a lot of sports talk and would lead into the business side of football.
