Where are you originally from and how long have you lived in Las Vegas?
I am originally from Philadelphia, land of cheese steaks, hoagies, and home of the Phillie Phanatic – best mascot in all of sports. After earning my Master’s degree in geotechnical engineering from Drexel University, I lived in Atlanta, North Jersey, Philadelphia, Las Vegas (2002-2003), and Washington DC. I have lived in Las Vegas continuously since 2006. It is nice having the Vegas kid Bryce Harper playing for the Phillies now.
What has NAIOP provided you that has helped you grow professionally or personally?
I have been a member of NAIOP for 14 years. I have been fortunate to make many friends by being a part of NAIOP. The last four and a half years, after starting my own business in 2015, have shown me how lucky I am to be a part of such a great organization.
What has been your favorite experience or story that happened at a NAIOP event?
My favorite experience at a NAIOP event – that’s easy. The NAIOP golf tournament in 2013 and playing with Travis Schultz and Mike Nibert. Mike hits the hole-in-one at Red Rock Country Club for $10,000. That was an excellent day. I have not missed a NAIOP golf outing since.
Who have you met at a NAIOP event that has influenced you or that you have become close friends with?
Everyone I have interacted with has influenced me. I hope I have had a positive influence on NAIOP members. I have worked with 28 current NAIOP sponsors on all types of projects.
What do you want your legacy to be in the Southern Nevada community?
Legacy – other people will determine what my legacy is. I just want to do excellent work for excellent clients and spend the rest of my time raising my three daughters, loving my wife and being a good friend.
