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 for Commerce Properties since January 2016.  I am grateful to be part of an organization that invests in their employees not only on a professional but personal level.  Outside of the office, I adore bonding with my son over our love of theme parks and other adrenaline-filled adventures.  When I’m not working or parenting, you can find me flying down the freeway on two wheels enjoying much needed throttle therapy.
