Deal that changed my career: I represented the old AT&T during its breakup and consummated $2.5 million in leases for them in 18 months.
I got where I am by: Sticking to my beliefs and expressing my opinions out loud
Habit to start my day: A large consumption of local news and real estate-related news to know what is happening before I am out the door
Most treasured memory: Summers at a lake in the Adirondacks
To unwind, I: Take long walks on the beach with my dog

One habit to start my day: Wordle
Most grateful for: A tremendously loving family
My perfect weekend is spent: Beaching it at my Hutchinson Island condo and struggling to catch anything on the surf rods
To unwind, I: Like to sip my scotch and play cribbage with the guys
