Professional Summary

I am a multi-disciplined real estate professional with 17+ years of real estate and legal experience.  I have been a broker with Colliers (and predecessor companies) since 2010.  I serve as the Managing Broker of the Colliers Bloomington office.

My practice includes a wide variety of product types, including office, industrial, retail, and investment.  I have a statewide land and development practice, including dispositions of large industrial sites and acquisitions of railroad right-of-way.  I also have a local (Bloomington) practice that includes a diverse clientele.  I enjoy the challenges and opportunities that are inherent in such diversity ― each with unique wants and needs.

Prior to joining the firm, I worked as a real estate developer at Pedcor Investments and Denison Properties. At Pedcor, I conducted due diligence, negotiated and acquired sites for LIHTC apartment projects (Low-Income Housing Tax Credit). At Denison Properties, I worked as a developer and attorney on industrial, retail, and residential land development projects. Prior to going  in-house, I was a real estate attorney in Minneapolis, MN and Bozeman, MT. Before law school, I worked for three years at a Washington, DC lobbying firm that represented Indiana interests. 

I have extensive experience assisting with sales and leasing, as well as with entitlements, incentives, and (some) legal matters. I also provide consulting services regarding site planning and related civil engineering and construction matters.
