Personal Summary (describe yourself)

Wired for sourcing and driven to search.

David's fun facts (and yes, he just went third person):

Don't know what Full Cycle Sourcing is? Send me a note and I'll fill you in! david@dgksearch.com 

Fun tidbits:

- Fan of 80's Hair Bands, Fender Guitars (southpaws unite!), and San Francisco Giants
- Proud human dad and husband
- Proud dog dad to Tilly Waffles & Hazel Nut, the Wonder Beagles
- Once completed the San Francisco marathon without requiring medical attention afterwards; that was a good day
- Fueled by chocolate milk and cookies

Other info to know:

- If you think I'm a match for a sourcing-based opening you have, just know that I'm fully remote but able to travel onsite to clients on a case by case basis.

- If your organization does not support a disbursed TA workforce model, then save yourself some time (and an InMail credit); no need to start a conversation if remote capacities are not an option. 😊
