Salted caramel ice cream with chocolate bits, some fresh chopped almonds and chocolate sauce.

How do you organize your day?

Try to get up by 6AM, make coffee for my lady, get the dog out, get kids to school and then grab the day by the horns. I start at my new coworking space KISMET COWORK in Chestnut Hill and then hit the Elfant Wissahickon Realtors office to follow up.

All coffee. Trying to drink less but it is a staple.

Adventure. I don’t really relax that well.

Summer. But I love the Fall. And the Spring. Winter is pretty awesome as well!

After buying my first house, I was HOOK, LINE, SINKER. It was a love affair.

It sounds corny to say I love helping people shape their lives but that is the for real story!
