After a successful career in the IT consulting staffing space, he spent a decade-long career in talent acquisition in the fast-paced and highly creative entertainment industry.

Later, he assumed leadership as head of professional talent acquisition at Walt Disney Imagineering (the themepark and resort design and development division of the Walt Disney Company). For more than six years, he led a globally facing team of talent acquisition specialists who combed the world for engineers, designers, artists, and other creative team leaders in a highly competitive and politically charged environment. Later, he served on consulting projects for NBCUniversal and DirectTV.

He has designed and developed training and development programs for talent acquisition and talent acquisition teams drawing upon his performance background.
