I specialize in investment sales as well as office leasing, including both landlord representation and tenant representation. I am a member of the Advisory Board Executive Committee at Colliers International Northeast Florida.
Prior to joining Colliers in 2008, I spent 20 years with an office REIT in various capacities. My experience there included site acquisition and building development. My involvement in all areas of real estate from market analysis to building design process to product delivery, including leasing, property and asset management, allows me to provide unique benefits to my team at Colliers International Northeast Florida. My expertise lies in problem solving, sales strategy, transaction management, construction management, and assisting owner and tenants in achieving goal-oriented results using best-in-class practices.
My current brokerage practice is focused on corporate services, providing real estate consultation to public and private entities. One of my largest accounts is the local transportation entity, the Jacksonville Transportation Authority. I manage both their surplus disposition efforts and their acquisition strategy. Their portfolio is valued at over $30 million. I provide a wide range of services, including but not limited to property sales, property acquisition, market analysis, lease analysis, government affairs and general market intelligence. I am frequently involved with executive level discussions and interact with their Board regularly. Additionally, I represent the St. Vincent’s Hospital Ministry for Ascension Health here locally. I manage dispositions, acquisitions and their income and expense leasing activities. My largest national account is Torchmark/Liberty National. I work with their Director of Real Estate to identify new office space for their insurance brokers across the country.
In addition to my traditional real estate practice, I have been successful in assisting numerous cannabis related businesses with their real estate requirements (dispensaries, grow & manufacturing facilities) here in Florida, as well as coordinating with other Colliers offices in Oregon, Colorado and California.
I am a native born JacksonvillIian. I attended Stanton College Preparatory School before graduating from Florida State University in 1997 with a B.S. in Political Science.

Working for a small development firm, we developed 50,000+ square feet of Class A office condominiums throughout Northeast Florida. I was the lead on bank and investor negotiations for investment capital and loan arrangements.
