I started my commercial real estate career in 2000. Beginning with a family boutique brokerage, I expanded my retail focus as a Senior Associate for Terranomics, one of Northern California's top retail brokerage firms. During my brokerage career, I represented both landlords and tenants throughout Northern California. In 2008, I joined Kimco as a Director of Real Estate and currently oversee leasing of a portfolio in parts of Northern California and the State of Colorado. I have ranked nationally as a top producer since joining Kimco in 2008 and have assisted with the execution of several Kimco regional programs, such as Kimco KEYS, the Kimco Hispanic initiative, and the Jr. Leasing Associates training program. I am a proud husband and father of four. I am also an avid runner and backpacker, and love to spend time outdoors whenever possible. My wife and I are also the founders of the Tiny Feet Foundation, a non-profit supporting families with premature newborns and those who have lost a baby pre-term.

Many of us at Kimco are involved in charitable organizations that hold a special place in our hearts. For me, giving back to other parents is a big part of my life — not only because I am a dad to five children (three sons and two daughters), but also because one of those children is no longer with us today.… Read More
