I’m what you might call a “multi-potentialist” – I’m good at a lot of different things. I may not be an expert in all of them, but I try new things every day. I’m comfortable with being a beginner, which means I’m not afraid to work in emerging markets, or in uncharted territory. It’s curiosity that drives me.

Before I found my calling as a recruiter, I was a touring musician. It was a big leap to recruiting. I traveled all over the world, playing for crowds of 50 to 500,000. After turning over every stone I could think of, I decided to settle down and start a family. As a rock ‘n roller, I knew I didn’t fit in the typical corporate world. I needed innovation, creativity, and attitude. That’s why recruiting for an innovative company that is pushing the boundaries of average is tailor made for me. After working a few years in a boutique recruiting firm, I joined Y Scouts in 2016, and haven’t looked back.

Here at Y Scouts as a Search Director, I get to focus on what matters most to people in their careers and align that with companies that offer them true fulfillment. I enjoy recruiting for a wide range of industries – especially technology, marketing, and the non-profit sector.
