I'm Direct Sourcing Strategy & Technology Channel Lead at PwC, where I'm to develop an advanced and innovative technology based direct sourcing strategy that takes advantage of new sourcing tech, while keeping best-in-class current tech and practices at their optimum. We'll be testing and deploying apps, developing new ways to create dynamic lists and talent pools, digging into social, getting heavy on mobile, and using it all to not only source directly, but to enhance our external brand as well. To get there, I'm working with some of PwC's leading lights in talent acquisition, which is terrific. Along with the over-the-horizon work, I'll be managing key parts of PwC's existing integrated digital recruitment strategy.

It's going to be terrific fun, too. If you're interested in joining a talent acquisition organization that's gearing up to shake up how recruitment happens, please feel free to reach out to me directly.

I'm also involved with the recruiting industry, where I muck around in the general conversation around who we are as an industry, and where we're going. I've lately been giving presentations around using mobile in recruitment, as well as how to build a transformative internal recruitment agency.

At a personal level, I'm a hack poet, fall-down-the-mountain-skier, and cook a decent risotto. You do not want to see me dance: it will haunt your dreams (and not in a good way).
