Welcome to what was my resume.

I’ve had to remove the complete public version of my resume as a result of individuals who have decided to ‘borrow’ elements of my resume – including lifting entire sections of text from it verbatim for their own resumes.  If you didn’t know, the studies say at least 45% of all resumes contain outright false information in them (http://visual.ly/truth-about-lying-resumes), and nowadays it seems that folks aren’t even creative enough to write the lies themselves.  As it is, as a hiring manager I have encountered a number of these instances firsthand, and I have heard many stories from others that range from the brazen to the outright hilarious.  Anyways, this is the result.

But don’t dismay!  If you would like a complete copy of my resume, feel free to visit my LinkedIn profile for a general overview, or e-mail me using the link at the right and I’ll be happy to send you a URL from which you can download a copy.
