Professional Summary

Since 2000, I have specialized in representing companies in high-value lease negotiations for distribution centers and manufacturing plants, with a focus on cost-reduction.

My commitment to transparency and conflict-free negotiations provides results that impact what is most important to corporate stakeholders: reducing costs, increasing profitability and improving valuations. 

Throughout my career I have represented tenants in more than 25 million square feet in over 65 markets, and negotiated leases with an aggregate value exceeding $600 million for companies in a broad range of industries including consumer product distribution, e-commerce, paper and plastic packaging and contract manufacturing.

I joined Colliers International after the company acquired Interstate Tenant Advisors—a company my partners and I founded in 2003. Interstate Tenant Advisors was one of the first firms to specialize exclusively in industrial tenant representation.
