My willingness to lead and take on a project where unique approaches are needed to get through interference is a strong suit. I thrive on connecting with candidates on another level and finding the position they aspire to do. Through sports I have learned that grunt work needs to be done in order to succeed, and I am always willing to do that to find that “purple squirrel” for my client.
Before Elite, I worked at Manpower, where I was able to develop the proper techniques to appropriately find the perfect candidate. I excelled at finding the right candidates in different markets in a high volume, metric-driven position. Prior to Manpower, I spent several years teaching and developing at risk kids in the city of Milwaukee to deal with everyday life. Even though it could be nerve-racking at times, seeing my kids smile and succeed was one of the best feelings one could ever have.
While thinking of my personal achievements, only two really come to mind. First would be graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, which in the beginning didn’t seem like it was going to happen from all the fun. Secondly, I would say winning a national football championship with my current team the Racine Raiders. I am hoping my next achievement will be my current goal which is to get accepted into and complete a MBA program.
Volunteering and helping out with inner-city kids has always been something that I loved to do. Just being there for kids and encouraging them to do better and be better is more important than providing things most of the time. I am also planning on giving back through coaching football, so I can pass on everything that I’ve learned in my years of playing.
When I am not working I am usually busy playing for the Racine Raiders minor league football team. Football takes up about 7 months of my year with practice, games, training and hosting football events for kids. When that is not going on, I like to hang out with friends, family, go to plays, work out and listen to music.
