License # 475.116419
Local and national corporations rely on my expertise in tenant representation and strategic real estate advisory services. I am passionate about understanding my clients’ business and ensuring the real estate solution matches the business goals. Over the course of my 18-year career, I have gained experience working on both the tenant and landlord side of the business, giving me a unique perspective and invaluable understanding to commercial real estate.
I began my career at The Staubach Company representing tenants before joining Equity Office Properties where I leased 4 million square feet of the suburban and downtown portfolio. At the sale of Equity Office to Blackstone, I joined Cushman & Wakefield focusing exclusively on representing tenants. I rose to senior director before joining Colliers International in 2014, where I continue to specialize in strategic advisory sources for local and national companies.
