What do you do best?
Make people laugh, both in business and in my professional life. I really should have been a comedian, or a comedy writer. I have a lot of material.
What makes you the best?
My quiet confidence in my abilities, knowledge, and expertise. I’m not a micro-manager. I’m a logical, strategic, big-picture thinker. I try extremely hard to be humble. About five months ago, I began to meditate every night. I know my best quality and I’m not afraid to delegate to my team.
My graduate degree and all the hard work, traveling and effort that went into completing a top-tier program while working in an extremely demanding executive role.
What are your aspirations?
Personal: I already have a really amazing life. I hope to continue my path in remaining centered, following my bliss, and live in a residence that I design/build
Business: to build my own building, maintain a stellar reputation and essentially continue to do meaningful work in the real estate business
Most challenging moment?
I don’t handle incompetence as well as I should, that is a recurring challenge. The rest I don’t see as big challenges. Hurdles are just part of the business, which makes it interesting.
"Those who speak the most often say the least."
I appreciate transparent, genuine, intelligent people who do what they want, without the concern of social climbing or navigating through political agendas, or by stepping on others.
Colombia, Singapore, Madrid, Miami, and New York
My iPhone, my music apps to stream on Bluetooth in my car, fabulous shoes (I dislike label dropping) and black clothes. I only wear black these days.
I’ll always have a passion for good music. I love listening to music, discovering music, singing (and even rapping) to myself in the car – it really helps me get through life.
