“Growing up in the wild wild east…amidst black diamonds…was carefree and fun!Boarding school changed all that and led to a British/Irish upbringing with a lot of emphasis on baseball and swimming! For the first time, got a taste of bullying and learnt the early lessons in grit, an attribute that would hold good later!
Much later, while in engineering college, I felt like the odd one out, when I used to gape at beautiful buildings instead of girls (didn’t hurt that the architecture girls found that hot). I could not think of a career which did not help me build…and it was then, that I thought of “born to build” as a tag line when (it was never a doubt), I founded my own firm!
Here I am, doing what I do the best for the last 17 years- Building….fighting…taking my grit to higher levels and generally loving it! Looking forward to creating real estate history”
