After a career in technology sales and marketing I became a technical recruiter in 2006. In late 2007 I launched my own recruiting and consulting firm here in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St Paul, Minnesota (MN), Deep Valley Consulting LLC. I recruit nationally in the areas of IT and all things Internet, technology sales and marketing (hardware, software and services), e-commerce, interactive/new media, etc. In addition to recruiting, I teach workshops on the use of LinkedIn for business development, the use of LinkedIn for job search and the use of LinkedIn for employee recruiting.
StrengthsFinder 2.0 shows me to have the following Top 5 themes; Communication, Adaptability, Woo, Maximizer & Strategic. A brief description of those themes and how they manifest themselves in my professional life can be found in the attached report below.
On a more personal note, I have been active in assisting individuals through career transition for over 20 years. I currently facilitate the Wooddale Church Job Transition Support Group every Monday morning at 7:15AM. There is no charge and all are welcome to attend.
My new career allows me to align my professional activities with my passion for helping others.

In April 2008, author, blogger and fellow LinkedIn evangelist, Jason Alba visited the Twin Cities to promote his new book I'm on LinkedIn ... Now What? During the week I hosted Jason and arranged several opportunities for Jason to speak to various local job transition groups. Jason wrote this blog post after his return to Salt Lake City.
In April 2008, my good friend, colleague and noted Web 2.0 authority Steve Borsch made mention of my ability to see the connection between people and the value it could create by putting them together. As an example, I introduced local social media maven Phil Wilson to Steve Borsch and Graeme Thickins which led to birth of Minnov8, a blog and podcast forum following Minnesota technology start-up and emerging growth activity.
