What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? I am a managing partner at a fully integrated, full-service commercial real estate firm with property management, asset management, construction management, sales, and leasing divisions.

Favorite book or author: “The Stars My Destination” by Alfred Bester

One word to describe your work environment: Collegial

Rules to live by in business: Your word is the only thing you have to trade.

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? Sean Connery to figure out why he thought it was a good idea to make “Zardoz.” Given the nature of the film, I would take him to a great steakhouse, like Gallagher’s for red meat!

What is your DREAM job? (something other than your current job) Chef!
