About

Professional Summary

I advise corporate clients through tenant representation brokerage and corporate real estate advisory services. I lead a multi-disciplined team with clients including middle-market companies, financial and professional services, law firms, Fortune 500 companies, technology and media industry, as well as some from the education sector. My entrepreneurial energy and commitment to maintaining a high level of integrity inspire my teammates to solve clients’ problems selflessly with conviction and distinction. I am a leader in both the Occupier Advisors (OA) and Corporate Solutions (CS) practice groups.

Promptly after college graduation, I worked on Capitol Hill a few years before becoming a site selection consultant at Arthur Andersen LLP. My passion for real estate then accelerated and I obtained my MBA in Finance, Marketing and Real Estate before joining CBRE to specialize in tenant rep brokerage and corporate accounts. I progressed in the same disciplines at Cushman & Wakefield before joining Colliers in 2008. As a principal at Colliers, I have a vested interest in seeing the firm's regional cultural success and profitability.

Me and my wife, Kristy, have three sons.
