Can you give us a brief history of your professional career?
I have been a Human Resources Manager for the past 12 years. I made my way into HR via Risk management and training with McLane Company as an operations training specialist. Before my HR career I was a church pastor for 22 years. So, I’ve been busy helping people my entire career. I’m a graduate of Point Loma College (PLNC). Go Sea Lions!😊
What is your specialty?
I have supported transportation/ warehousing, home services and telecom construction companies. The companies I have worked with have been fast growing and in need of specialized technicians which has led to my focus on recruiting. Currently I’m supporting our client, Author Health, primarily as a recruiter. I enjoy helping put people to work.
What do you love about your job?
Human Resources is mainly about problem solving. Helping navigate sensitive personnel challenges and legal concerns keeps the work interesting and rewarding.
What is your favorite pastime outside of work?
My wife, Paula, and I have been married for 33 years. We have 4 children and 6 grand children and try to spend as much time with them as possible. I have been technical rock climbing for over 30 years. I enjoy the physical and mental challenges of the sport. I’ve had a resurgence over the past several years, traveling to Yosemite, Red Rock, Joshua Tree, Tahquitz, Eastern Sierra and of course the crags of San Diego climbing with my friends.
