1.    How has NAIOP helped you develop new business?
The interactions with members at meetings and events is invaluable.  Nowhere else in Las Vegas is there such a concentration of all the right people I need to know and work with.

2.    I am a NAIOP member because…
NAIOP is the premier organization in Las Vegas for anyone who is in any field connected to development and construction.  Everyone who is anyone in the industry can be found right here.

3.    How did you first get into the industry?
My family owned a construction business while I was growing up, and I’ve worked in construction my entire life.  When it came time for college, structural engineering was the obvious choice for me.

4.    What do you want your legacy to be?
I’d like to be remembered as being fair and honest and doing great work.

5.    When you were a kid what did you want to be?
When I was young, I always wanted to be an engineer – I just didn’t know that’s what they called it until I was much older.
