As FirstBase's CEO, I provide creative, effective real estate solutions for business leaders. 35 years in the corporate real estate industry have seen me work with clients ranging from GE Capital to AIG, and broker transactions spanning more than 8 million square feet in and around the Philadelphia area alone. I co-founded FirstBase to bring my experience to support innovators and entrepreneurs.
