First job outside of real estate: My entire professional life has always been in real estate. My first job out of college was for TCN Worldwide on Long Island as a broker.

First job in real estate or allied field: I began working exclusively in tenant representation in 1992 when I joined Studley.

What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? I am currently president & managing principal of the N.Y. office of Cresa, the top tenant rep firm in the U.S., doing what I enjoy more than anything – representing tenants. For the future, I will continue to expand the business, bringing on more brokers and consultants. We now have 35 people in our office; by 2015, we should have close to 50. The 50 will be comprised of 30 tenant rep brokers, five capital markets brokers and 15 consultants. The consultant team will include a chief economist, CPA/financial analysts, workplace strategists, project managers and researchers and graphics design professionals.

How do you unwind from a busy day in real estate? I’m an avid fly fisherman. This time of year you can find me in one of the local streams, practicing casting and hopefully catching some fish. I also love to cook. I start planning and preparing on Friday and usually cook various meals for 10-12 people over the weekend.

Favorite book or author: “Undaunted Courage”

Favorite movie: “A River Runs Through It”

Last song you downloaded? I love rock and roll music so the last song I downloaded was “Gasoline Alley” (Rod Steward & Jeff Beck)
