Brokerage Executive Vice-President
License # 01180340
As an executive vice president for Colliers based in downtown Los Angeles, I specialize in representing companies and landlords in the acquisition, leasing, sale and disposition of commercial real estate throughout Los Angeles County. I lead a team of four talented professionals, who are each dedicated to providing our clients unrivaled service and savings. Ultimately, our goal is to maximize our clients’ leverage in every transaction, and to minimize their risk.
Born and raised here in Los Angeles with nearly a quarter century of experience in the commercial real estate industry, I am exceptionally familiar with the various market dynamics at play in any given L.A. neighborhood. Over the course of my career, I have completed transactions totaling 27 million square feet and counting.
I have been happily married to my best friend for more than 11 years, and we have an amazing daughter. I am a graduate of Loyola High School here in Los Angeles, and from the University of Colorado in Boulder. I regularly make my way through and around Los Angeles County, typically putting more than 20,000 miles a year on my car, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. As an avid surfer, scuba diver and mountaineer (biking, skiing, etc.), I love Los Angeles and am committed to ensuring it is a hospitable and constructive place for my clients, too.

- Max Green Circle of Excellence (2014-2018), Colliers International
- Top Ten Producer in Los Angeles (2004-2012), CBRE
- Top 225 Producer in the Nation (2009), CBRE
