About 

Over the course of my career I’ve worked with some of the largest developers in Los Angeles to renovate over 1,000,000 square feet of corporate/commercial, residential, retail and mixed use space to increase each building’s value in the marketplace.  

During that time I've learned to effectively manage and collaborate with project architects, designers, contractors, product vendors, engineers and other consultants to ensure proper execution of each project’s design and technical performance for a variety of higher education, residential, corporate/commercial and K-12 projects. Some of my former clients include Brookfield Properties, Jamison Services, UCLA, USC, Thomson Reuters, Mullin TGB, Bank Of America, Ernst & Young and Johns Hopkins.
