At Microsoft I supported the Real Estate and Facilities group. I helped acquire land for data centers and negotiated vendor contracts.

I also supported the supply chain team when it acquired and opened a new distribution center, in addition to leasing, acquisitions and dispositions of retail and industrial properties. I was a member of the executive committee that was charged with locating, acquiring and designing the new corporate headquarters in Bellevue. I also oversaw all real estate and construction related litigation and supported the outdoor programs that sponsor and host outdoor related events.
