I launch and run my own businesses and help others build or fix theirs.

My most recent venture is TalentSum LLC, a talent acquisition consultancy and best practices implementation firm.

About me

Over the years, I've founded and ran seven business ventures (3 in talent acquisition), led marketing for multiple firms (public and private), and led 400+ consulting engagements for a wide range of clients, from startups to some of the most notable brands in the world.

Personal tidbits: I was born in Philadelphia. As a kid, I thought I wanted to be a marine biologist or an explorer - but ended up with a strong set of skills in both talent acquisition and marketing. I lived and worked in the Washington DC area for 20 years. I currently live in the Philadelphia area with my wife, two kids, and one happy dog. I don't carry much hate in me - except for clowns. They're the worst. For some reason, I'm only able to remember one joke - but it's a really good one. And no one will ever see me wearing a pair of Crocs.
