I was born in Sydney, Australia and have been living out of Australia for more than 5 years now. I moved to New York after time living and working in Asia (Hong Kong, Singapore and the Philippines). To live and work in New York was a dream of mine and when I transferred here in 2008 to open a Hong Kong based Real Estate Investment Company’s first US office it was a dream come true. I have since changed jobs and am still working in real estate for a new firm in NY covering both the residential and commercial markets for domestic and international clients. I am a qualified engineer and have an MBA in General Management. I am a licensed Real Estate Salesperson in New York State and I present a monthly program for the New York Real Estate Institute’s continued education program on the Fundamentals of International Investing. I came across the JICNY when I first moved to the city and have attended a number of the dinners for the chagim. It is always nice to know that there is a place at JICNY to celebrate the holidays and to meet so many Jews from all over the world is fantastic. The team at JICNY are always friendly and inviting and they provide an excellent service to the many of us not from here!
