About

Professional Summary

I began my career in property in 2018, after graduating in 2017 from the University of Leeds with both, a BA in Human Geography, and a MSc in GIS (Geographical Information Systems). My first job was at the Proptech firm Datscha, where I started as a Junior Research Assistant, researching investment deals (worth £3m+) across all asset classes in the UK. This sparked my interest in investment research and commercial property analysis. Now I am able, as part of my role here at Colliers International, to expand this investment analysis across the EMEA region, whilst simulatenously researching and reporting on other key factors that will impact CRE. After leaving Datscha after a year and a half, in August 2019, I moved to Landsec - one of the biggest REITs in the UK - and spent a few months there as a Retail Data Controller, before making the decision to move again here to Colliers International to join as an EMEA Research Analyst.

In my career, I have undertaken a variety of different and exciting projects. For Datscha, I have contributed to quarterly investment reports, created social media posts - using investment data - to spark commercial interest into Datscha's product. I also have a keen interest in photography, and, during my time at Datscha, I took on a photography project to take photos of buildings within Central London which had recently transacted between 2017-2019. I have also presented Datscha's Transaction Module to a variety of key players within the CRE industry; ranging from Savills Investment Management to CBRE's Valuation Team.

At Landsec, I undertook some tenant profitability analysis, looking at each asset and the tenant mix, to understand who was performing in a profitable fashion. I was also tasked with many data collection/validation projects, whereby I looked to gather as much data as possible which would help understand the Landsec portfolio performance better, and, ultimately contribute towards strategic decisions being made. Such data included: footfall, car park numbers, average spend, visit frequency and more. 

Now, at Colliers International, my remit stretches far and wide across EMEA. I will be responsible for the office, industrial/logistics and retail snapshots as well as monitoring market commentaries against their KPIs. In the future, my remit will expand further and I hope to take on more work, more responsbility and grow as a Colliers employee.
