I entered commercial real estate at the start of 2015 at Colliers in Seattle/Bellevue and have accumulated more than six scintillating years of commercial real estate research experience. A writer by nature, I am always trying to tell the story behind the numbers and go above and beyond to add value to our team of brokers. Forever teachable and eternally curious, I strive to always be learning more and staying on the leading edge of market trends and remaining abreast of all pertinent real estate transactions and developments. Passionate about real estate and cities, I remain dedicated to taking Colliers to the next level by providing market-leading thought leadership and trends analysis for my team of internal and external clients.. I am a journalist by trade and a natural-born storyteller, always digging into the statistics in order to craft a forward-looking narrative, providing valuable insights to the brokers I support.
I have ample experience in office, industrial, multifamily, and retail research, assisting brokers in the leasing and selling of property. I focused primarily on the office and industrial markets in the Seattle/Puget Sound region from 2015-2017. From the fall of 2017 to early 2018, I was the office market research analyst at JLL in Sacramento, spending most of my time on Downtown office landlord rep-related work. Since May 2018, I have been back at Colliers in my hometown of Sacramento. At Colliers | Sacramento, from mid-2018 to today,I have accelerated my career in the support of 40 brokers across the Capital City region. In late 2020, I was tasked with overseeing the Reno market while managing a new research associate. Over the last few years, I have extensive experience across many sectors of commercial real estate, including office, industrial, multifamily, retail, capital markets, healthcare, and life science.

Please reach out to me for my references and colleagues or former colleagues who can vouch for my work ethic and expertise.
Since 2007, I have worked alongside Tom Walcott, Jason Rutherford, Kris Reilly, and Scott Bennett providing honest and intelligent guidance to local and regional owners of office property throughout the Sacramento Area. Working with integrity, I handle my client’s commercial real estate needs as if they were my own.
While pursuing my own smaller tenant, landlord, and investor projects, I also provide support to my partners through the coordination of marketing, contracts, and transaction management. Through this experience, I have developed significant knowledge of the procedures necessary to transact a real estate deal.
Within Sacramento Brokerage, I oversee the research department. In this role, I manage the creation of our quarterly market reports, gather and distribute information regarding deals and market activity, and provide our brokers with tools and knowledge to help them better service their clients. This opportunity has made me more aware of market activity and the trends that affect all specialties such as industrial and retail commercial real estate. I can provide a more unique perspective to my clients than those who focus on one market sector.
My greatest accomplishment in life is being a father to my two daughters. I am actively involved in their extra-curricular activities including coaching softball & soccer and being a founding board member of Land Park Softball.
