Have you won any awards? Since I haven’t entered any competitions, the best award is the feedback I receive from clients, such as, “Throughout the process, I constantly got accolades about my resume as the most professional and impressive design and verbiage they have ever seen. From HR managers and hiring managers who have been constantly working on CXO positions, so it means a lot. It was literally life-changing/career-changing.”

Have you been published in any career-related books, news articles, or self-published? My clients’ executive bios have been published on numerous corporate, university, and nonprofit websites such as Florida Board of Governors, TEDx, Harvard University, LinkedIn, and Fortune 1000 company pages.

Any additional accolades worth noting? My writing/coaching has helped executives land dream jobs in Big Tech / FAAMG, Fortune 500, private equity, and even Fortune 500 boards.

What’s your favorite career tip or piece of career advice you wish every job seeker knew? The resume and interview process is not about you. It's about the audience (hiring manager, recruiter, interviewer, ATS system). By always viewing things from their perspectives, you can demonstrate how you will alleviate their pain and add value.

What do you like to do when you’re not writing resumes and working with job seekers? I love geeking out on new technologies, watching MMA/UFC, and creating music with the kids.
