His work with developers and operators of SROs, or rooming houses, has given him a background in the regulatory and financing environment in which these properties operate. His analysis of the "state of the art" of SRO design is seen in "SROs" in the Spring, 2004 issue of this newsletter. Jeff lives in Brookline with his wife and their daughter. Jeff is an ardent Red Sox fan and can jump on the T to be at the park whenever the Sox need him.
