  • Company: Alliance Residential
  • Location: New York, NY
  • Birthplace: Dallas, TX

Education: BBA from S.M.U., MBA from Wharton

First job outside of real estate: Technology Consultant for Andersen Consulting just out of college. Way too much time writing code quickly motivated me to make a career switch to real estate where my true interests were.

First job in real estate or allied field: Internship at a commercial brokerage.

What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? I am responsible for development and acquisition operations covering New York and Philadelphia metros, focusing primarily on urban infill development.

How do you unwind from a busy day in real estate? I recently joined an “old man” soccer team – fun and great exercise.  Also took up running.

Favorite book or author: I just read “The Power” by Rhonda Byrne. Great message of the power of positivity and the Law of Attraction – whatever you put out into the universe comes back to you.

Favorite movie: Hard question – maybe “The Princess Bride”

Last song you purchased/downloaded?  According to iTunes it was “How Deep is Your Love” by Calvin Harris & Disciples – I am a sucker for catchy dance tunes.

One word to describe your work environment: Collaborative

Rules to live by in business:  You will miss 100% of the shots you don’t take

If you could invite one person to dinner (living or dead, but not related to you) who would it be and where would you go? Jennifer Aniston on a yacht (hey, I can dream!)

[Choice 2: Bill Gates – at a pub]

What is your dream job? Chef – I love to cook.
