What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? Given the current
environment, there are many opportunities beginning to emerge for us to purchase
undervalued assets, distressed loans and securities. As a senior level executive having over
20 years of experience running real estate capital market groups for prestigious firms in
Manhattan, I have acquired experience on the transactional side of real estate in acquiring
both commercial and residential property, structuring complex real estate transactions on
both the debt side and equity side, and sourcing capital from high net worth individuals and
institutions. As a strategist and restructuring expert, I have repositioned over $3 billion
worth of assets to achieve greater market performance and higher valuations. Given the
environment, there are many opportunities beginning to emerge for us to purchase
undervalued assets, distressed loans and securities so I am presently looking to start up a
distressed real estate fund. As a result, I have put my development work on hold.
Person you admire most (outside of family): Bill Clinton, one of the most
extraordinary humanitarians in this country.
