Meet Our Experts

With a proven reputation and a tenacious negotiation style, clients in the professional services and nonprofit industries rely on my extensive knowledge of the Chicago real estate market. Clients such as Freeborn & Peters, Locke Lord, Alzheimer’s Association and One Hope United have realized aggressive deal terms and transaction structures. As a senior vice president in Colliers International’s downtown Chicago Office Advisory Group, I specialize in only tenant representation.

I began my career in real estate as an asset leasing specialist for CBRE in Washington, D.C. and also spent time with Grubb & Ellis Company in Chicago. Before joining Colliers, I served as a senior vice president in the tenant advisory services group at Transwestern.

I am the founder of Magis, an “1871-like” collaborative workspace for nonprofit organizations in Chicago. I am also a strong supporter of the U.S. Military. I created a scholarship at Saint Ignatius High School in honor of my friend LCDR Erik Kristensen (SEAL), and I also co-chair a Notre Dame Alumni organization that provides career transition skills to veterans.

I live in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood with my wife Beth, sons Jack (5) and Will (3), and a Jack Russell Terrier.
