One of Santa Fe's Most Influential Businessmen
Introduction
I have been recognized through countless local associations, as well as Santa Fe city, New Mexico state and National Trust For Historic Preservation for excellence in historic renovation and preservation. I have a background filled with design and renovation of homes on the east side of the City Different. My investment and influence over the Sanbusco center and Hotel Santa Fe were nationally recognized. I have been an active leader in all aspects of city development from the Railyard to the Railrunner. My leadership as a businessman influenced the institution of the Archaeological Review Board for Santa Fe city building permits. I have even had the honor of a Joe Schepps Day proclaimed by Santa Fe last year in recognition for a long list of accomplishments that have made the city a better and more beautiful place to live.

Born in Dallas, a fourth generation "Dallasite", from Russian Jewish immigrants who arrived in the latter part of the 19th century through Ellis Island. First we had a small bakery, expanded to 11 locations, sold them, lost everything in the Crash from that sale. Then we went into the insurance business and when repeal came, went into brewing as well as the beer, wine and liquor wholesale distributorship business which we remained in until the mid 1990´s.

Attended prep school back East, Stanford University for College then moved to Santa Fe in 1971 and taught school in the junior high level for a year. I then decided to move in into real estate, high end residential construction and commercial construction. Some of my most notable commercial work is for the Pink Adobe and La Fonda in the 1980´s. Then I went on to build the Inn on the Alameda, Hotel Santa Fe, and Fechin Inn in Taos, as well as the re-development of Sanbusco Center. I have served Santa Feans through time spent on many boards including First National Bank of Santa Fe, Santa Fe Opera, Founding Director and Vice-Chairman of the Lensic Performing Arts Center and many educational institutions like Santa Fe Prep, Rio Grande School and United World College. I have two wonderful children and a loving wife that make my life complete.
