What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? I currently manage a growing private equity firm that focuses on real estate investments in the NY metro area. We acquire property, originate short term loans, and purchase non-performing commercial loans. I plan to grow Hirshmark Capital into an active vertically integrated organization involved in all aspects of the real estate transaction, from purchasing and financing to actively managing both equity and debt investments.
How do you unwind from a busy day in real estate? If I get home on time then I unwind by giving my three kids a bath and reading them a bedtime story. If not, I go for a run and observe the numerous developments going up in my neighborhood.

If you could invite one person to dinner (living or dead) who would it be and where would you go. George Washington – Shabbos dinner at my house.
