Who has been your greatest influence in your life? My parents. My mom taught kindergarten for 40+ years and she is the most caring, compassionate, and patient person.

Professionally, my property, Sofi at Somerset, received the Pacific Urban Residential 2016 Excellence in Operations Award. My best personal accomplishment is my amazing family, wife and two wonderful little girls.
