Real Estate Development in Las Vegas, Nevada

My passion is in the conception and realization of innovative developments. I thrive in the cross-section of thinking and doing. I believe in theFirst Principlesapproach to problems and obsess over the customer experience in everything I build.

The last four years of my career have been deep in commercial real estate development working on projects in agriculture and multifamily leveraging tax-advantaged programs to maximize ROI. I ran portfolio operations for VTF Capital, a $50mm venture capital firm investing in the future of retail. I co-founded two startups: SHIFT, a venture-backed transportation company, and Work In Progress, the first co-working space in downtown Las Vegas.

I started my career at Zappos.com and led the LEED Gold development of their new headquarters in downtown Las Vegas. The office has received extensive PR and has been ranked as one of the best and coolest offices in the country. You can see it for yourself by taking one of their world-class tours.

When I'm not working, I can be found with my beautiful family (Kara, Atlas, Skye, and Audio doggie) and friends exploring the world and living life to the fullest.
