What is your favorite part of Charleston?

Our cultural core is growing and progressing with new businesses, people, and perspectives. Charleston is a beautiful city with rich history, but the vision and direction is what I am most proud of. There is a buzz in the air, and I love being in the midst of it.

What are your favorite features of homes and why?

I look for engaging spaces that feel inviting and comforting; spaces with the right amount of sunlight, proportion, and openness to the rest of the house Ė be it a kitchen island, a porch overlooking the garden, or bedroom with great light. I look for good places to live.

Favorite restaurant in Charleston and why?

If you have not been to Xiao Bao Biscuit on Spring Street, then you are missing out. My wife and I ride our bikes there about once a week and dig in to their daringly unique flavors and Asian dishes that never fail to leave us fat and happy. Itís our go-to.
