“I come from a large family, so it’s no surprise that I’m a competitive person. I love nothing more than a good game of tennis, especially against my brothers. I’m the self-proclaimed “Crawford Family Tennis Champion,” and I’m always up for a challenge.

When I’m not playing tennis, I love to travel. I’ve been to some amazing places all over the world, from the French Alps to the black sea beaches of Turkey. I love trying new things and experiencing different cultures.

My better half and I are also passionate about food. We love visiting new restaurants and trying new dishes. We’re always on the lookout for the next great culinary experience.”

Why Platinum

“I first encountered Platinum when they helped me with staffing when I was the manager of a local restaurant. After working with them as a client, I knew that I wanted to be a part of their team internally.

I was drawn to their commitment to providing excellent customer service and their dedication to helping their employees succeed. I knew that this was a company that could push me to be the best I could be and I wasn’t wrong.”
