I received a Master’s Degree in Architecture and harnessed a thirty year profession in the field of real estate development. My position in prominent New York architectural firms and with international real estate developers resulted in the successful design, development and construction of over 25 million square feet worldwide. I continue to passionately pursue a multi-layered life that includes philanthropy, sport, and academics: as the head of the venerable Village Temple Soup Kitchen in New York City since 1999, an ardent fly fisher for trout, a certified United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) teaching pro and high school tennis coach, and an author who continues a quest for knowledge and an elevated understanding of human existence. My life in New York City, with my wife of 36 years and adult daughter, continues to be filled with great majesty.</p> </div> </div> ConnectED Library HotSpot Patron Lending Event *Limited Hotspots Available* (Bronx Library Center) // <div class="vevent"> <p><span class="location">Bronx Library Center, Auditorium </span> <br /><abbr class="dtstart" title="2016-10-23T14:00:00-04:00">Sunday, October 23 - 2:00 pm</abbr></p><div class="summary"> <p>The ConnectED Library Hotspot Loan Program is a collaborative program by New York Public Library, Brooklyn Public Library, Queens Public Library and Department of Education to provide thousands of NYC K12 students with free Internet access for the rest of the school year.
