"I believe my background is uniquely suited to meet the needs for your search. My services and expertise in identifying high quality candidates have been built through a 25 year professional career in pioneering education technology companies, leading universities, and my own consulting and executive search.

What you will learn from others about me is that I have built my reputation on the ability to become completely fluent in an organization's requirements and to recruit the best quality candidates.

Perhaps most importantly, I am thoroughly connected regionally and nationally to both education and business sources."
