Where are you originally from and how long have you lived in Las Vegas. I’m from Niagara Falls, New York.  My family came here 44 years ago, in the Spring of 1978, after huge blizzards in Western New York.

What has NAIOP provided you that has helped you grow professionally or personally?  NAIOP provides me access to professionals in and related to the development of commercial real estate.  The Monthly Breakfasts, educational opportunities and the Government Affairs Committee provides me valuable knowledge.

What has been your favorite experience or story that happened at NAIOP event? I have a great time at all the events.  I partiality for the Golf Tournament as I have worked on the committee for many years, and always enjoy the event. One of my best experiences is receiving the Rayburn P. Jones Memorial Trophy in 2019.  It meant a lot to me.

Who have you met at a NAIOP event that has influenced you or that you have become close friends with? I’ve meet so many great people though NAIOP.  Rick Myers from Thomas and Mack Development Group is someone who I have gotten to know through NAIOP.  Rick has been a great mentor, friend and professional contact.
