As a young man growing up in a military aligned family, security & defense is a concept ingrained in my beliefs and partly what has driven my recruitment career into the cybersecurity arena.
Starting my early professional life training as a Chef, interning in London at the Michelin Star Ritz for 3 ½ years taught the true meaning of long hours, hard work and falling asleep on your journey home. It also taught me the necessity for passion & pride in what you do and following the completion of a BA (Hons) I decided to immerse myself in the security world as my family have done before me, by pursuing a career in Cybersecurity recruitment.
Working in London for a well-regarded technology headhunting firm, specializing in Information Security; since 2013 I have exclusively recruited for various forms of information & cybersecurity positions with clients ranging from leading Investment Banks to specialist vendors and top-tier consultancy practices.
In 2017 I joined the TechStream Group as one of the pioneer members of the North America Cybersecurity talent acquisition team and to head the recruitment for cybersecurity & risk advisory consulting clients from our New York office. Working with leading consultancies building robust security practices & capabilities and niche advisory services in areas such as GRC, QSA’s, Assurance services, DFIR, Pen testing, Architecture, Encryption, DP, DLP, to name a few. I feel I am able to contribute to nationwide cybersecurity in my own way, driven by passion, transparency and honesty.
