Professional Summary

As a Vice Chair  for Colliers International in the Inland Empire, I specialize in the leasing and sale of industrial properties across the San Gabriel Valley and West Inland Empire submarkets. With more than 15 years of experience providing commercial real estate services, I’ve established a strong reputation as a trustworthy advisor with in-depth knowledge of local market conditions. Always keeping my clients’ best interests at the forefront of my methodology, I calculate trends and implement strategies that maximize results.

I joined the Colliers Inland Empire office in Ontario, California, in 2011. Prior to that, after having graduated from the University of California, Davis, I first began my commercial real estate career as an associate with Grubb & Ellis.

A dedicated father, I enjoy spending time with my wife and young children. I am also a driven competitor at heart, having completed seven Ironman triathlons. An advocate for my community, I enjoy giving back by participating in Big Brother Big Sister programs within Orange County.
