I began my commercial real estate career in 1997 after graduating from Gettysburg College with a BA in history. Initially I concentrated on corporate services work for national tenants. Since that time I have worked on behalf of numerous fortune 1000 organizations both on the landlord and tenant side and have closed some of the largest transactions in western Pennsylvania.
I began working on retail projects in 2005 with the ground up development of a 30,000 sf retail center. Since that time I have focused on retail assignments, representing landlords and tenants in the development and leasing of retail projects throughout western Pennsylvania, West Virginia and south eastern Ohio. I have worked on a number of ground up retail developments, as well as the leasing of traditional retail strip centers and urban retail projects. I've represented a number of retail tenants in their location searches, including Wahlburgers, Banfield Pet Hospital, Hooters, Dollar General, Quest Diagnostics, Edward Jones, Emiliano's and many others. I have been recognized as a retail power broker in the Western Pennsylvania region by Costar and have been represented on the Pittsburgh Business Times largest transactions list a number of times.
I have more than 30 years of experience in the commercial real estate industry. As a Principal at Colliers International | Pittsburgh I am responsible for a full range of real estate services. Prior to joining Colliers International | Pittsburgh, I was a Principal at NAI Pittsburgh Commerical for more than 5 years where I was reponsible for a full range of real estate services for office, retail, industrial and tenant representation. I began my career as a member of the brokerage staff of Cushman & Wakefield. I have worked on commercial deals in 15 states and in South Africa.
Additionally, I have worked in development with Carnegie Properties, where I managed investment and leasing for properties in Pittsburgh, Orlando, and Chicago.
I was a former Chairman of FamilyLinks Board of Directors, a former Animal Friends Board Member, a former Parent & Child Guidance Center Board Member, a former Member of the Board of Directors of Pittsburgh Metropolitan Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and a former Board Member of the Rivers Club.
