Real estate philosophy: Architecture is to general real estate as [famed Abstract Expressionist] Sam Francis lithographs are to gift wrap.
Favorite career moment: It was the simple joy of seeing the [Richard Neutra-designed] Barsha Residence restored from near-total destruction. Like the Kaufmann Desert House by Neutra, the house had been significantly degraded by alterations and additions that almost completely hid the quality and magic of the residence.
