Mike is a pioneer, leader, innovator and visionary in luxury resort and residential development.
What makes him unique is that he combines this with a fierce tenacity to get things done regardless of the obstacles.
For more than thirty years he has consistently broken new ground and raised the bar for what is possible.
Many of the elements now considered standard requirements for luxury developments were first his brainchild.
Nowhere is this more apparent than in his ground breaking Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman project, where not only was he the first to see that high-end resort developments required a combination of hotel and branded residential that worked together seamlessly, but was also the first to realize the potential of bringing multiple complimentary brands together to create something unique, and uniquely valuable, in the world.
A combination of skills and experience covering, design, construction, operations, sales, marketing and finance enable him to see all aspects of a project at once.
His unique abilities have enabled him to partner with people who are recognized as the very best in their fields, convincing them to risk their reputations with him as they work together.
