What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? I’m a commercial real estate appraiser, and also current treasurer of the Appraisal Institute’s Long Island chapter. I plan on continuing in the appraisal field and growing my business.  I’m also looking to begin to invest in property myself.

How do you unwind from a busy day in real estate? I’m also involved in what might be the only industry more competitive than real estate – the music industry.  I, along with my partners, have had music placed in film and TV.  Although I don’t play venues anymore, I still enjoy getting behind a drumset when I have the time. Also, watching the New York Mets.

Favorite book or author: “1984”

Favorite movie: “Fight Club”

Rules to live by in business: Be persistent.  Don’t be afraid to surprise yourself.  There’s an opportunity to learn something new every day – take advantage of it.
