I consulted clients on brand strategy and marketing in the fashion, trend and entertainment industries.
2.) What do you love most about working with CORE and its agents?
The environment at CORE that breeds creativity and originality, which I love. The agents take a tremendous amount of pride in their work and are always challenging the status quo, it makes me better at what I do.
3.) How does your background with lifestyle brands help CORE agents?
Working with different kinds of brands gives me a window of insight into consumer behaviors and trends that is very dynamic. The real estate business is a people business so my diverse portfolio is what continues to give me a fresh perspective.
4.) Who is your mentor in life?
I have several, my mentors are invaluable to me. If I have to chose one it would say Heath Gunn, he is a CPA and like a second father to me. He is constantly teaching me the art of business and life.

We know you’ve been waiting with baited breath for any information about our new Tribeca development at 93 Worth. There’s been a lot of buzz (including the project gracing the cover of New York Post’s fall new development preview), but not much information has been shared on this new conversion project. Amid the construction this week, we captured a mural artist painting the 93 Worth logo on the alley which will greet potential buyers as they enter the building to check out the model units.
