What is your favorite moment of your career so far?
Being on the Strategic Planning team for Landmark in 2016. Deciding how to move a large and dynamic company forward is challenging, so I was thankful for the knowledge of our board members and the engagement of the team members.

After college graduation, I was a management trainee for a finance company. I had to repo a car my first day on the job…
If you had not chosen your present career, what would you be doing?
International law really appealed to me
What is the one item you cannot live without (besides your cellphone)?
Strong coffee! Two cups in the morning and two in the afternoon.
What do you do when you’re not at work?
I enjoy martial arts training, skiing and golf—and anything that my teenagers will agree to do with me
What is the top issue CARW should be tackling as an organization?
CARW should continue its role as an advocate for smart economic development. The experts within CARW add real value to decisions made on catalytic projects, like Foxconn and the Bucks arena, and on TIF legislation that enhances redevelopment and growth opportunities.
How has membership with CARW been of value to you?
CARW is the one organization where I can meet with and learn from all commercial real estate professionals in the market. The relationships made and the knowledge learned through CARW are critical to my team and our clients.
