I am an entrepreneur and I have a thirst for learning and love putting things together to make them work. I have been educated and inspired by the two professions that I have spent my life in. The first 11 years of my marriage, I worked in my wife’s family owned industrial laundry/linen service business. I worked all aspects of the business including sales, service, production and the last 3 ½ years as the general manager. During this time, among other things, I learned management and human relation skills in a service industry and I developed a deep respect for working class people. My second career is real estate which began in 1980. I operate under CLP inc which was incorporated in 1993. My experience during my years in real estate includes: residential sales, commercial sales & leasing, business and hospitality sales (bars, restaurants & casinos), management of property & businesses, real estate development of residential and commercial land, new home construction, residential and commercial townhouse/condo projects, affordable housing and business development.
