Before his real estate venture, Becker was a stockbroker; he had his massive breakthrough in 2000 after purchasing several tech companies.
Becker later sold his share of the development to his partners in exchange of three townhouses on Sullivan Street. His ventures are majorly in the aspects of real estate, art, tech, and finance.

He also has a metaphorical approach towards money and how people relate to the meaning of money.
