President

Commerce Properties

I have worked at Commerce since 1994.  I have enjoyed helping the company grow since then.  Building a culture based on shared values has been especially rewarding.  Away from work, I enjoy spending time with family, being outside and watching all kinds of sports.  A favorite activity is sculling on the Willamette.  (Just look for the guy whose technique resembles a blender.)

I’ve worked at Commerce for little under a year and every day is a new adventure!  It’s amazing to work for a company that preaches it’s Values while still valuing you as an individual.  I appreciate the culture of integrity and service behind all communications with coworkers and residents here.  Outside of the office, I’m a Multimedia-Journalism graduate student at the University of Oregon in Portland.  I love this city, and am extremely fortunate to work for Commerce while living here.  GO DUCKS!
