Undergraduate Institution: George Mason University
Campus Involvement: Real Estate Club
Employment: My past work experience includes working with the founder of a media consulting group in Iraq to support the Department of Defense with outreach to communities throughout the Middle East. I then went on to direct and produce independent documentaries. I am a National Geographic Emerging Explorer and a TED Global Fellow. I currently work with private investors to buy, rehab and sell real estate properties.
Kogod Decision Criteria: I started as a certificate student in the MS in Real Estate program. I decided to pursue a full degree after my first semester. The MSRE program emphasizes a financial understanding of commercial real estate development which I think is crucial. It also has a distinguished reputation within the commercial real estate industry.
Kogod Value: I have enjoyed getting to know my fellow students and professors. The campus is very convenient and there are many resources the program offers such as various clubs, networking events and software training.
