About

Professional Summary

As a Senior Brokerage Associate with Colliers International | South Carolina and a member of the industrial team for central South Carolina, I specialize in leasing, user sales and investment sales of industrial properties.

Since a young age, I have had a profound interest in commercial real estate. I have long found industrial brokerage to be intriguing because it serves as the foundation of many different types of businesses and processes. It is very rewarding to have the opportunity to play a role in the goals and progress of each of our clients as a trusted commercial real estate professional.

Accomplishments

While attending the University of South Carolina, I served on the planning committee for the annual Game Ball Run, which raises money for the Marcus Lattimore Foundation and Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Additionally, I was also involved with the Caribbean Youth Network, a program that provides shelter, food, sports facilities and equipment for youth on Long Island in the Bahamas.

Today, I am a member of Christ School’s Alumni Council.

In 2017, I was recognized as a CoStar Power Broker in industrial leasing transactions in Columbia, South Carolina. In 2018, I received the Colliers | SC Rising Star Award.  Also in 2018, I received the Central Carolina REALTORS® Association Commercial Circle of Excellence Award.

Over the course of my career, I have participated in transactions totaling 14.6 million square feet, valued at over $350 million.

Education

I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics.

In 2014, I joined Colliers | South Carolina as an intern, conducting research for quarterly market reports, special projects and case studies in the three major markets in South Carolina for two years before transitioning to brokerage. I find that my exposure to market data and establishing relationships with many of the professionals I continue to work with today, while working in the research department at Colliers provides valuable insight into market trends and deal-making from the brokerage perspective.
