(Sidebar for the phonetically inclined: It’s German and pronounced hoo-ben).
I’ve been recruiting in the creative field for 18 years and coaching for 6 – time flies when you love what you do!
My recruiting experience includes stints on both the creative staffing side (Artisan Talent and Evie Porwick/FPO) and in-house with ad agencies (Organic and Digitas), where I helped build the creative and UX departments.
I’ve been working as an independent recruiter for 8 years. I added coaching in to my services in 2009 after graduating from Coach U. I have a BA in Art History from Boston University.
I understand what makes great creative teams function and have partnered with many Creative and UX Directors to help them build award-winning teams. I’m a well-seasoned ‘go between’ for creative people and where they land. I know how to spot strong portfolios and match that talent with the right company.
You’ll find my style to be collaborative, direct and sincere. I prefer to work as a true partner with both clients and candidates and will always treat our relationship as a transparent and open one.
When I’m not recruiting or coaching, I can be found with my dog Ruby, trying a new vegan recipe or doing yoga.
I also love meeting new people, so let’s connect here:
I occasionally contribute elsewhere.
If you’re a creative wondering about the next iteration of your work in the world, I’d love to meet you and learn more about your dreams. Check out how coaching with me works here.
