What is your formula for keeping your high-end and/or high profile clients happy?
I design to fit their worlds and exceed their expectations.
In your opinion, what are the best, most exclusive neighborhoods in your market?
I love the Venetian Islands where you have the best of both worlds... close to the beach and the city it's still a neighborhood with people walking their dogs, riding their bikes and jogging.
What makes your city unique?
The International mix of people in an atmosphere where you can relax and drop
the formalities of a big city.
If you could live anywhere and money was not an object, where would you live and why?
The new One Ocean, I think.
