Professional Summary

As Director on the Steering Committee of Colliers Global Life Science Practice Group, I bring 42 years of commercial real estate experience and 22 years of experience focusing on life science real estate. My acquired knowledge in life science work has been on both the landlord (Wexford Science & Technology) and the tenant side within the industry.

I have experience with Gene Therapy, Parenteral Fill Finish, Solid Oral Dosage, Biologics, and Medical Device manufacturing facilities, as well as a solid background in Laboratory Research and Development/Pilot scale facilities and controlled environments. Through my work on local, regional and national site selection assignments, I have developed a firm grasp of the rigorous process required to meet the key search criteria of my clients.  

My knowledge of market conditions and influences in the life sciences supports my ability to be creative in structuring the financial details of both lease and purchase transactions. My network of a wide variety of trusted advisors within the industry facilitates a regular flow of information about life science real estate trends, pricing, and comparable data for leasing and sales transactions.
