What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? I’m currently overseeing the management of 50 buildings across NYC and Brooklyn. We hope to grow our business to over 100 buildings over the next two years. We offer boutique property management services. Our hands-on approach allows us to be selective in the buildings we bring on board. 

How do you unwind from a busy day? A three-mile run. My goal is to always run in under 24 minutes. I’m constantly pushing myself. I find it’s important to let out your stresses in the most useful way running.

If you could invite one person to dinner (living or dead, but not related to you) who would it be and where would you go? Warren Buffett and we would go to Peter Lugers 

What is your DREAM job? (something other than your current job) There is no dream job, I’m living it. When you come from corporate America you learn to appreciate the freedom you have of running your own business.
