I am an Executive Vice President and shareholder at Colliers International (NASDAQ: CIGI). Our team within Colliers specializes in working with C-level executives and operational specialists to develop and execute corporate real estate strategies on a local and global basis in an effort to maximize operational efficiencies and value.

My primary focus is representing dominant logistics companies in the acquisition and disposition of “supply chain real estate” - distribution centers, truck terminals, last mile hubs, manufacturing facilities and industrial land.

With over 12 years of experience, I have developed an unparalleled understanding of Supply Chain Real Estate strategy via negotiating 500+ transactions, globally, in 50+ cities while generating millions in value for my customers. Not to mention- we have fun doing it!

My clients and teammates are all folks who you can trust with a handshake. Life is too short to operate any other way.

I enjoy reading, writing and speaking about eCommerce and the logistics industry. I've been featured on podcasts like the GaryVee Audio Experience and interviewed by multiple publications including the Wall Street Journal. I've also been a featured speaker at multiple real estate and logistics conferences around the globe. Just shoot me an email if you want me to speak at your event and we will try to make it happen!

I am currently on the steering committee for the Colliers International Logistics & Transportation Solutions Group and an active member of IWLA, IAMC, and the semi-legendary, Texas Warehouse Association.

When I'm not attending a Tony Robbins conference or taking a selfie in a warehouse, I'm also a Dad, a husband and a lifelong athlete having played collegiate level football and rugby. To increase my mental toughness, I have completed 3 Ironman triathlons. Thankfully, I haven't done one in 5 years! These days, I spend my time practicing yoga and recently completed 100 hours of yoga teacher training.
