His professionalism, genuineness and sense of humor impressed me from the day one. He was a good listener, well articulate, responsible and extremely organized person. He took his time to learn my skills, qualities, personality and most importantly my expectations out of a future job. He worked with me through each and every step while looking for the best suitable match. I believe he has a strong work ethic and never fails to follow up with his client.
