What do you focus on?

Problem Solving

I pride myself as a “problem solver.” Most tax credit transactions involve multiple financing sources and transaction participants with varying levels of understanding of program requirements. I simplify transaction complexities with a goal of achieving a smooth financing closing for my clients.

Industry Leadership

I am a frequent speaker at national tax credit industry conferences, speaking on various investor-, developer- and deal structuring-related panels.

What do you see on the horizon?

I have been following developments in the potential infrastructure tax credit and how such opportunity will affect both my developer and investor clients.
