Q: What is your business and how long have you been doing it?
A: Hire Profile is an Atlanta-based creative resources firm that places the right marketing, advertising, graphic design experts into the right environments to help client relationships thrive. We provide creative talent on a short and long-term basis and conduct permanent searches. Ninety percent of talent is in Atlanta. Our 1099 freelancers can work hourly, flat fee, on- or off-site. I started this business in 2003 after working for eight years for a large staffing firm and eight years as an advertising account executive in Los Angeles.
Q: What makes you good at what you do?
A: I believe I have a natural drive to match people together. I have always loved to promote people, connect people and publicize and recognize talent. This inner need to introduce everybody and find commonalities between different people led me to recruiting after an eight-year career in advertising.
Q: How did you end up in Roswell area?
A: I came to Roswell from Decatur where I was living just prior. I am from the Los Angeles area, but always loved greenery and horses more than the beach, where I grew up. I moved to Georgia seeking the solid business opportunities, affordable housing and less traffic. Two out of three isn’t bad. I think Roswell is the perfect combination of urban and rural for me. I am close to my horse-owning friends in Canton and Alpharetta but I can be in Buckhead just as fast. I love our downtown and rarely feel the need to venture far… we have everything right here!
Q: What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
A: I have just completed my second semester of Greek language school, preparing for my upcoming two weeks in a rural town in Greece. I like decorating my house, gardening and spending time with friends in and around Roswell. Love walking in Big Creek Park, which connects to my neighborhood. I feel very fortunate to have such easy access.
Q: How do you stay connected to the community?
A: I read the local paper and am a new subscriber to the Patch. I always attend the local festivals, movies and music in the parks; and have attended networking events intended to connect local businesses. Every year I put on a clothing swap for women to come and exchange clothing at Roswell’s Open Mind Center. All remaining items are donated to Fur Kids, The Hope Store or this year everything went to the Foundry in Cullman, AL for tornado victims.
