Partner San Diego Email LinkedIn

Jasper started his career in retained search in 1999 and has since completed hundreds of assignments across the broad spectrum of tech.  He specializes in enterprise software, but has also worked with category leaders in mobile/IoT and consumer internet.  His clients have created more than $30B in wealth creation, powered by sensational companies like: AppDynamics, WeWork, Mulesoft, Fitbit, Lynda.com, Okta, Uber, SendGrid, Xamarin, and Xero.

Jasper’s search career started at Heidrick & Struggles before successfully building an internal search firm for an emerging venture capital fund.  He joined True after 10 years at Bay Area search firm SPMB.  Prior to his search career, Jasper worked in the Strategic Services group at Andersen Consulting (Accenture) and the Supply Chain Strategy Practice at Ernst & Young.

When Jasper’s not hunting white rhinos and unicorns, he hunts two other mythic beasts – his 3 and 5 year old daughters, Kirra and Sasha, with his wife, Michelle.  Sometimes he even gets a moment to sneak in a surf.
