What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? I manage the sustainable housing services group at Steven Winter Associates. We support project teams seeking to comply with regional green building programs, utility-sponsored energy efficiency incentive programs, and national green building programs including the National Green Building Standard, LEED for Homes, and Energy Star programs for single-family and multifamily housing.

How do you unwind from a busy day in real estate? Right now, I work on my house. It’s a fixer-upper and we’re just getting started. Fortunately, I find painting, sanding and vacuuming therapeutic.

One word to describe your work environment: Familial

If you could invite one person to dinner (living or dead) who would it be and where would you go? Frederick Law Olmstead at the Central Park Boathouse. It would be fascinating to see what he thinks of his work today.

What is your dream job? I’m living it!
