Thank you for your interest in SiliconCantera. While we just celebrated our 15th anniversary in June 2020, at the height of the COVID crisis, my industry expereince dates back to 1997. I started in the search industry by finding computer programers leading up to the dot.com boom. My experience, which started without even a computer on my desk has helped me develop the communication skills neccessary to make our clients and candidates feel comfortable.
I have been honing my search skills over the last 20 plus years while being able to manage teams of business development and search professionals. I am able to balance the personal aspect of the Search business with the use of the latest technologies.
Through the years our teams have worked on all types of projects, big and small; retained and contingency, direct hire and contract in industries as diverse as Energy, IT, Medical, Accounting, Sales, Manufacturing, and Executive Search.
I look forward to working together and feel free to contact me directly to set up a phone call to discuss your needs. firstname.lastname@example.org

You have learned a little about my business experience, but you should also know something about me personally.
I was born in Terrytown, New York, but we immediately moved to Greenwich, Connecticut where I grew up and my parents still live. I am the middle of three brothers and everyone stayed in the area except me!
I enjoyed my time in Greenwich where I was very active in sports, school activities, my church, and with the Boy Scouts. I earned my Eagle Scout in Greenwich Council and graduated from Greenwich High in 1989.
At the last moment I got accepted to Rice University, and sight unseen left the North East and headed to Houston, TX. After graduating in 1993 with a BA in Architecture I decided to stay in Houston and never left. After working a few years I met my wife while she was in culinary school. We married in 1996, so you can do the math. Fell into the Search industry in 1997 and never looked back.
We have two teenage children, Katie and Liam; plus a number of pets running around. We enjoy reading, sports and travel.
