What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? I am currently the President of the Putnam County Economic Development Corp. where my main goal is to drive the economic vitality of Putnam County, through the attraction, retention and expansion of businesses.

How do you unwind from a busy day in real estate? Exercise, play soccer, relax with friends and family.

Favorite movie: I watched “The Wizard of Oz” hundreds of times growing up, but more recently, I have to say “Rudy. ”

One word to describe your work environment: Exhilarating

Rules to live by in business: Keep focused on the big picture, but never lose sight of the details. Treat everyone like a prospect. Treat every prospect like a client. Treat every client like they’re family. Treat your family (and business family) like gold.

If you could invite one person to dinner (living or dead) who would it be and where would you go? I would invite both my Grandfathers to dinner. Unfortunately they passed away before I was born so I never had the opportunity to meet them. They have shaped my family in more ways than one, and I would be honored be able to sit, listen and learn from two very important men. We would go to Mulino’s in White Plains.

What is your dream job? My dream job is where I am able to influence people in a positive way, create opportunities for those around me, make a difference in the community I serve and leave a positive lasting impression on those I come across.
