By day I work for a commercial real estate brokerage firm focusing on marketing, transactions and compliance operations. To date I have managed the marketing/transaction process for over $450 million in successful senior housing, retail and multi-family real estate. I've consulted in the merger/acquisition process for significantly distressed senior housing properties. By night I engage in a variety of business activities ranging from financial, estate and investment planning to assisting building an IATA certified travel agency and breeding Chow Chows. My extracurricular include downhill skiing, auto repair, and camping. I have achieved the rank of Eagle Scout, and various awards from vocal and ...More instrumental competitions. I received my B.A in Political Science from Loyola University Chicago. Currently, I am in the process of obtaining my Certificate in Financial Planning from Boston University. I anticipate taking the exam to achieve my CFP certification. I tend to be more conservative and believe in free market capitalism.
