Country Head, Canada

I’m responsible for the overall Hines Canada platform. I currently serve as the senior officer on a number of projects including CIBC Square – a three million-square-foot twin-tower office development across from Union Station in Toronto, including a one-acre elevated park above the rail corridor; Bayside, a two million-square-foot, seven-building master-planned mixed-use development on the Toronto waterfront, including the tallest mass timber office building in North America; Park Central, a two-tower, 1000-unit high-rise multifamily development in the Calgary Beltline; and Eighth Avenue Place, a two million-square-foot twin tower office complex in Calgary.

I joined Hines in 1998. After spending the first 10 years of my Hines career in Chicago, I moved with my family to Toronto to help build a Canadian platform for Hines. I’m passionate about assembling a high-performing team, that now numbers 121, and developing a strong culture. I have focused my development efforts on projects that have elevated the quality standard and service level existing in the current marketplace, created a sense of place, and improved the communities we live and work in.

I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from the University of California at Los Angeles, a Master of Science degree in Civil Engineering with a specialization in Structural Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and a Master of Business Administration degree from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University. I also hold a Professional Engineering license in California.
