Tell us a little more about you: I’m an Australian and was living in Hong Kong before coming to San Francisco 16 years ago. Educated as an architect, I’ve never designed anything, but worked in the design profession for a long time, focusing on the people and business needs that help shape how the design of space responds. Four years ago, I was lured into real estate, to bring that focus to the services we offer our clients, and have never looked back! Notable industry achievement: 2014 CoreNet Northern California Service Provider of the Year. What’s something you’re most proud of? I’m proud of how much my small team has achieved over the past four years. We’ve engaged with hundreds of clients across the country, many of whom never thought that our company could offer them strategic thinking that would address the needs of their people and help underpin business success in the way that new workplace strategies can. Is there a quote you live your life by? My motto is “to only have it if you can have the one you really want.” I work really hard at not having too much ‘stuff,’ just the things I really need and love.

What would most people be surprised to learn about you? I’m just back from an ice climbing adventure in Colorado. Why do you enjoy working at Cushman & Wakefield and in the commercial real estate industry? I appreciate the energy here – there is a lot of momentum moving us towards greatness. We have an appetite for change and for seeking differentiation: This is an area where my team brings added value to Cushman & Wakefield and we enjoy recognition of that by our colleagues and clients.
