Global Talent Sourcing Transformation, Strategy and Innovation Leader

Rebel, pioneer, innovator, thought provoker, founder, husband, and father. By day I’m officially Global Head of Talent Sourcing and People Analytics at an 11 year old $2 Billion tech unicorn. What that really means is I have the honor and pleasure to serve as chief talent sourcing advisor and recruitment transformation leader for a group of very talented, passionate and dedicated people on a mission to disrupt how consumers shop online. In and out of work I’m quirky, introverted, creative, generous, humorous and loyal. Some call me a Subject Matter Expert, others see me as a Mad Scientist, Educator, or Advisor. Just don’t call me a “guru” because I have more questions than answers. My drive to serve compels me to be a coach and guide, or even a mentor, certainly not a sage. You’ll find my name on hundreds of “top influencer” lists but don’t be fooled, I’m just a geek with a passion for solving puzzles and a facility for seeing patterns others missed.
