Why SAGE?

SAGE is a boutique firm with an All-Star cast, why not SAGE? I get to work beside some of the best in the business, as well as the future of this business, and I get to do it in an environment that believes in providing value and EARNING the trust of our clients and candidates. This group is not about the numbers, not about the bottom line, it is about being the best in the business. This office is full of energy, enthusiasm, competition, and people who want to build relationships, not cash checks…who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?

What do I enjoy about our business?

My life has been about developing and maintaining strong relationships built on a foundation of honesty and transparency. It is the relationships that I truly value, that drive me, and motivate me. I believe in servant leadership, in reflecting the glory of my Lord and Savior through showing kindness, being genuine and valuing the people that are trusted into my care. I believe that I have a responsibility to better the lives of the people that trust me to find them a new and exciting role, or find a valuable member to add to their team. This business is one that allows me to have a positive impact on others through open communication and truly LISTENING to their needs. Seeing the excitement and joy that a candidate gets when an offer is extended for the role they have been searching for, or the relief and excitement a client feels when we find them that ROCKSTAR candidate they needed, that’s why I do this.

About Me

Blessed and highly favored by the most-high God, I have been refined through the fire. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

I have been blessed with the most beautiful, kind and encouraging wife on this earth. She is my queen, my heartbeat, and my best friend. It is providing for her the gives me the drive and ambition for every cold call, every rejection, every closed door, I do it with a smile on my face because I know this provides for the life she deserves.

Outside of my Lord and my wife, my interests include football, football and more football! After playing for 17 years from 6-23, I have spent the past 9 years coaching at the college or high school level, and I currently coach the Defensive Back’s at Dallas Christian High School. Coaching has been my calling and my purpose, it allows me to give back, to pour into the next generation and build up a godly group of young men, instilling values in them that were instilled in me: Toughness, hard work, boldness and a servant’s heart. It is these values that have made me successful in recruiting and in life. I am truly humbled by the abundant favor of the Lord.
