He is an expert at transit-oriented development who has created hundreds of millions of dollars of value.

With Chris Wogas, he spearheaded the Hoboken bike share pilot and permanent program. He has an MBA, from Harvard; and MArch from Yale; and a BS from Virginia.

About our interview he says, "Bikeshare is on fire and evolving. Typically Asian companies (called Tsunami companies) are deploying literally millions of bikes. Backed by leading VC and PE firms like Andreessen Horowitz, Hillhouse Capital, Sequoia and Tencent, and partnered with Alibaba, Foxconn, Didi-Chuxing (ride hailing), WeChat, these companies are focused on something much different than traditional bikeshare. Why? Tsunami companies will put many existing players out of business. We will talk this phenomena and how this is part of the battle for the $5.4 trillion transportation services market."
