About Me

I'm a family man with a wonderful wife Nancy and two kids, Julia who's out of college and working for a programmatic ad tech company, and John Henry who's just graduated college and pursuing a career in the music industry. We live in CT and have a rescue dog "Stewie" and a rescue cat "Charlie Parker" and we have a lot of fun with both of those crazy animals. I probably work too much, I guess that's why I eventually opened my own Technology recruiting firm after working in a large one and then a medium-sized one, I really enjoy being part of the technology industry and trying to do the very best job of staffing and placement that we can do, constantly learning and trying to get better. But I try to balance the work with a lot of fun activities with family, friends, sports and travel.

Why I love selling...

I get tremendous satisfaction from helping an individual find a new position and take the next step in their career. When working with clients, I love to discuss and understand where they're taking their department or what the new project is, and then finding the right person or team of people they need. And I enjoy keeping in touch and seeing the results and progress over time, that really feels good and is interesting to me.

When I'm not working, I love to...

Play any sport involving racquets and balls, golf is a new passion, I ski and organize an annual "Ski Wild" guys' ski trip we've been doing for 35 years, ride my Peleton bike and race people on the leaderboard, and do home-improvement projects.

The video interview with John, Danny and Mariah seemed more like a conversation rather than an interview. I enjoyed the chat, talking about my experience and learning about the opportunity.
