He possesses a mixture of skills including financial & statistical modeling, appraisal, programming, and data science. During his career, he has successfully brokered/ led investments worth more than USD 500million.

I like working in commercial real estate finance because commercial real estate is the core of many other industries and this helps me to understand the way of the world at a deeper level.
What I find fascinating is how all things are virtually connected and that there is a connection between almost everything.
My strengths are systematic but flexible thinking, discipline, the ability to simplify complex processes into simpler solutions.
What I like most about working at CICI is that everyone is like a bigger family, you have everyone’s back and they have yours.
My personal core value is systems, efficiency, and perfection.
