In 2007, the company successfully finished a 25,000 sq. ft. mixed-use project in Birch Bay, WA.

His main interests lie in helping others make effective real estate decisions that tie back to economic and environmental sustainability. He has worked extensively with Dr. Jim DeLisle as an assistant both in the classroom and on research. Currently, he is assisting in research that includes empirical analysis of some 200 mixed-use projects between 2002 and 2008 in an effort to determine what is the most effective both from a tenant, asset mix and locational perspective. His diverse background allows him to provide creative and unique solutions to issues affecting the real estate market. He is a member of the UW Real Estate Club, ULI, NAIOP, CoreNet, and ICSC.
