ND&S Management Company, President
I am the co-founder of ND Consulting, ND&S Management Co. and Duffe-Nuernberger Realty, now know as Tower Real Estate Group. These firms are involved in the development of real estate, its management and brokerage. Using these tools , our firms have improved neighborhoods and provided better living and work environments for residents.
I am the founder and president of LinkStl, a not-for-profit whose mission is to better connect the residents of Hyde Park and Old North St. Louis to opportunities and resources.
I like the challenge of working with others to change neighborhoods in distress. I learned those skills working on issues in the Shaw Neighborhood and the Gate District; I now apply that knowledge to Hyde Park, Old North and College Hill neighborhoods.
The Green House Venture is an effort to tie many of the institutional strengths of the central City of St. Louis, like 4 grade schools, St. Louis University, Washington University, Tower Grove Park, Gateway Greening etc., into an educational program for the area children.
“As a long-time Shaw Neighborhood resident, I have loved that the Botanical Garden, Tower Grove Park and Reservoir Park border the neighborhood. The north border is I-44, which until the Green House Venture (GHV), was a weedy embankment; now it is an attractive, educational, research classroom. The GHV is currently raising funds to build and operate the greenhouse, which will complete the educational facilities. The entire site will provide a hands-on, science-based curriculum for St. Louis region’s youth.”
