PERSONAL MANTRA: Solve challenges people think are unsolvable and do what is considered undoable. WHO I AM: My birth mother left when I was 2. For the first 8 years of my life it was my Dad and I in a tiny apt. At that age, make no bones about it, we were poor. Through that experience I developed a resilience that is unshakeable, a high stress tolerance, and the ability to thrive under immense pressure. All of that shaped who I am today and drives me on a constant pursuit of achievement and providing more for my family. I am inspired by my wife who is the kindest most and genuine person I know. I am fascinated by those who defeat the odds, and do the ordinary, extraordinarily well. WHAT I DO: Commercial Real Estate executive and Chief Operating Officer at DLC Management. Lead a team of 65 #CRE top pros. Lead the value creation teams; leasing, construction, property management, and marketing. Committed to solving real estate needs for local entrepreneurs, regional operators, and fortune 500 tenants. ➜ Resolute about removing obstacles ➜ Inspired to be a part of the development of people ➜ Fanatical about crushing personal and company goals HERE ON LINKEDIN: I spend time on Linkedin because I am always looking to elevate myself and I am on a constant pursuit of learning. My content is focused on my passions: real estate, retail, sales, and leadership. WHAT WAKES ME UP EACH MORNING? Outside of the inspiration I gain from my wife and family, what fires me up? The opportunity to work in an industry that is constantly changing, battling disruption, and flat out not easy. I get jacked up knowing I can make an impact with these circumstances. OUTSIDE OF WORK: I am a health and fitness enthusiast. Grew up playing football and wrestling. Wrestled in college at a Division 1 program, Rutgers University.
