Which project, deal, or transaction was the “game-changer” in the advancement of your career?
In consecutive years I worked on the partial sale of a two NYC-based office building joint venture, situated in a legacy structure. The transaction size combined with the sophistication and diversity of both the investors and professional teams involved resulted in an experience where the mere listing of issues and necessary documents resulted in a ten-page document in and of itself. I learned a lot through the process from both a technical standpoint and how to conduct myself with the utmost professionalism amongst so many strong and intelligent voices.
What can our political leaders do to increase equality in the workplace?
I believe the first step is obtaining a deep understanding of the inherent flaws in the system. Recent events provide greater visibility, but surface recognition and patchwork approaches can never adequately address or fundamentally change a system so deep rooted. Politicians must remove ego, realizing past wrongdoings, imperfections and flaws are never ok or justifiable, but can be addressed appropriately and remedial measures can be taken.
If your life were made into a movie, what actor would you want to portray you?
Andy Samberg would be a good fit and probably lift me to the level of being as funny as I like to delude myself into believing.
What social media platform do you use the most professionally?
