What do you do best?
I always go with my gut and it pays off.
What makes you the best?
I'm fair, I listen and see both sides to every situation... But when I commit to something watch out, because I don't stop until I get it.
What are your aspirations?
Personal: Always stay kind, intellectually curious and positive. Essentially find power in the things I can control and let go of what I can't.
Business: I aspire to be the go-to luxury real estate and art consultant in NYC.

My family and friends. My younger cousins in particular make me want to be better and do better. I wanna be them when I grow up!
