I’m the CEO and Founding Partner at Halo, where I lead Human Resources, Finance, and Technology search across all levels and geographies for a select group of clients from a variety of industries. My career started at the staffing firm, Delta Technical Solutions running a full-desk across the manufacturing vertical for clients in the Midwest. After quick success at DTS, I transitioned to a retained executive search firm, where I quickly climbed the ladder becoming a partner at DHR’s emerging-leader business, Jobplex.
As a Partner at Jobplex, I led Human Resources, Finance, and Sales search at the Director, Vice President, and Individual Contributor level, and assisted with a program supporting military veterans transitioning into civilian life. I was recruited into Lucas Group to build out their Chicago Human Resources search practice, before leaving to join Hunt Club, where I was able to partner with start-ups, mid-market, and enterprise organizations assisting with their hiring needs.
I graduated from Roosevelt University in 2012 with a BA in Economics. On the weekend, you can find me on the golf course working on my swing or spatula in hand at the grill.
We are a boutique firm
Looking to build long-term relationships with companies that we can truly impact by connecting with the right talent.
I’m a Founding Partner at Halo, where I lead technology search across all levels and geographies for a select group of clients from a variety of industries. I began my career in recruiting as an unpaid intern at the retained executive search firm, DHR International, before rising through the ranks to become a partner at DHR’s emerging – leader business, Jobplex.
As a Partner at Jobplex, I established their first technology focused recruiting practice, and built programs that supported military veterans transitioning into civilian life.

I graduated UW Madison in 2012 with a BA in Literature, and am a published poet, having been involved in spoken word poetry in the Chicago area for over a decade. If we aren’t talking about search, ask me about the last book I read!
Partner, Accounting & Finance Practice
I’m a Partner for the Accounting/Finance practice at Halo Consulting. I started my recruiting career with Lucas Group as the first recruiter in their Chicago office in 1997. I was the Senior Partner in the Accounting/Finance niche of Lucas Group till 2022.
My insight into the Chicagoland business landscape, combined with my extensive network and diverse career experiences, help me better understand current and future career opportunities for my candidates and clients.
Prior to recruiting, I spent 17 years as a Catholic Priest for the Archdiocese of Chicago. I spent three years as a member of the leadership team and full-time recruiter with Kuczmarski and Associates.
The interactions and relationships I’ve built as a priest, friend, business partner, and recruiter have allowed me to create a vast and varied networking circle that I use to make strategic, successful placements for my clients.
I earned my BA from Loyola Chicago, M. Divinity from St. Mary of the Lake Seminary, and my MBA from the J.L. Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University.
I am also an adjunct faculty member at Loyola University Chicago School of Continuing and Professional Studies.
In my free time, I enjoy working out regularly, dinners in and out, and reading and consider myself a political and news junkie.
