What are you doing now?
I'm a Senior Technical Recruiter and Recruiting Lead for Flux Resources in Lake Oswego. Flux partners with companies to provide staff augmentation and recruiting services. Our goal is to find talented professionals and match them to opportunities within their area of expertise at our client companies. Outside of work, I serve on the board of a local theater group with my wife. I can also be found about town at networking events.

Tell us about yourself.
I was born and raised in Portland, OR, which makes me a rarity in the Portland area these days. At Linfield, I played baseball, was a member of Kappa Sigma fraternity, had a radio show on KSLC, and served as a Big Brother. After graduating from Linfield, I spent 20 years in the personal lines insurance industry working for two of the largest insurers in the US in a variety of roles. I made the transition to recruiting in 2011 and have enjoyed a successful and satisfying career helping connect others with great career opportunities.

How did Linfield help prepare you for your career?
I credit Linfield for giving me the opportunity to compete as a student athlete, which helped me develop the drive and work ethic to succeed in life. My time and experiences at Linfield also taught how to be focused, persistent, and how to work with others.
