Curbed Young Guns, now in its first year, aims to identify promising up-and-coming talent (35 and under) in the fields of architecture, interior design, and urban development. For the next few weeks, Curbed National will run individual stories on each Young Gun; here's a look at a member of the Class of 2013 based in DC:
Daniel Miller is the sort of 26-year-old who's any real estate developer's dream hire: he has a dual B.S. and M.B.A. from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, where he studied real estate and finance, not to mention three separate licenses from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), meaning he can do complex, cool-sounding things involving securities and investments that laypeople will never truly understand.
Yet Miller kept it in the family after graduating, first working for his dad—he "developed a lot of iconic mixed-use projects in D.C." and was largely focused on "economic development oriented, public private projects, emerging neighborhoods"—and then spinning off with his older brother, Benjamin, "to do our own creative real estate development projects" in their hometown of Washington D.C.
