Actively involved in the development, financing, brokerage, contracting and management of commercial real estate since 1982. In the 1980's through a company called Creative Capital converted approximately 1100 apartments in New York and New Jersey to co-operatives or condominiums.

With the downturn of commercial real estate in 1990,retired to Beverly Hills to write music and then moved to Southern Oregon to create Worldwide Network, a magazine and electronic bulletin board known as Global Electronic Marketplace. The venture reached 176 countries and was the forerunner to Google and eBay.

From 1993-1997, I was the #2 man at the Carlton Group, Ltd., a major real estate investment banking firm. From 1997-2001, represented the Collegiate Church in the disposition of some $40 million of Lower Manhattan real estate and was actively involved in a number of downtown Manhattan conversions from Office buildings to multi family housing. 

From 2001-2005, I was involved in various brokerage and financings for New York metopolitan area transactions as Sr.Managing Dir at Colliers ABR in New York and even had some experience in Mainland China real estate transactions. 

From 2006-2008, I was asset managing distressed enclosed shopping malls with an eye towards converting these prime properties into mixed use developments. 

In 2009, I shifted my concentration to property auctions and direct HUD Lending given the state of the commercial real estate market at that time. 

In July 2010, I joined Plaza Capital Management, LLC as CFO to help to build and develop the largest observation wheel in the world somewhere in NYC.

July 27, 2012. New York Wheel LLC signs a pre-development agreement with NYC to develop the largest observation wheel in the western hemisphere on Staten Island.

Most recent passion is The Natural Resilience Fund, a not-for-profit platform to help fund financing gaps for climate resiliency efforts through a proposed climate resilience investment tax credit.
