The Recruiting Animal

I am a big-time people person and have worked in IT for more than 10 years.

A few years ago, I had the opportunity to combine my love for people with my knowledge of IT by transitioning into IT recruiting.

I’m like eHarmony for Infrastructure Application Development teams. 

I really enjoy meeting new people, developing an understanding of their needs, then finding them their “perfect match.” 

Fun Facts:

- I served in the Army (Reserves)

- Won a certificate in 8th grade for asking the most questions.

- I’ve worked in cool places i.e The Pentagon & Capitol Hill

- I am kind of big (6’4 200+)

- I’ve performed stand-up comedy multiple times. 

- I’ve been night club security for high profile venues.

My career has allowed me to live in some of my favorite cities: DC, Vegas and, now, Miami.
