As a real estate tax specialist, I advise my clients on planning concerns related to purchases and sales, partner buy-outs and redemptions, tax and debt structuring, historic tax credits, and other community development incentives. Furthermore, I consult with clients on how to best utilize the new opportunity zone incentive. As the firm leader of this investment vehicle, I work with those seeking to create opportunity zone funds and am involved in a coalition to help policymakers shape regulations and legislative corrections. I also regularly speak about the program to associations and at conferences, and was twice named a Top 25 Opportunity Zone Influencer by Opportunity Zone Magazine.

I have a strong passion and personal interest in the redevelopment efforts occurring in Detroit. I love exploring and celebrating the rehabilitation of its incredible architecture and keeping up on the newest businesses in town.
