People are important; the right people are priceless. I truly believe that businesses succeed or fail based on having the right people, in the right roles, at the right time. It all starts with understanding what talent you need to succeed in the marketplace, assessing what you have, identifying the talent gaps, and then executing on obtaining that talent. The same principle is true for a great marketing campaign. At the end of the day, content development, along with strategic planning and assessment is mandatory in both fields. Managing social media channels, developing campaigns, and building relationships utilize my skills to communicate, plan and think creatively. I learn very quickly and for this reason I enjoy taking on challenges. I excel in positions with steep learning curves. Seeking out knowledge in a variety of areas, I'm not shy about experimenting with new ideas in my free-time. I thoroughly enjoy the challenges that each role brings and continuously look for ways to grow.Recruiting Leader at Amazon @ From March 2013 to Present (2 years 8 months) Irvine, CASenior Consultant - Technical Recruiting @ SpaceX seeks to revolutionize access to space with its family of launch vehicles and spacecraft intended to increase the reliability and reduce the cost of both manned and unmanned space transportation, ultimately by a factor of ten.
