“I work in an exciting industry with a fast-paced team of people who love what they do,” Leo explains. Kyra Willans, Technical Recruiter at Crescent Solutions, recently placed Leo Jackson at a top music and entertainment industry where he’s been working as a Systems Engineer for the past month. Kyra always has exceptional things to say about Leo and his work with our client. “[He] has always struck me as an extremely genuine guy who is willing to put in the work required to achieve success,” she shares. “When [our client] said they needed a ‘yes man’ who was a problem-solver, talented and flexible enough to wear multiple hats, I knew he was the perfect guy for the job.”
In his pre-tech years, Leo studied music back in his hometown and is a classically trained vocalist. “I grew up in Seattle and attended Western Washington University in Bellingham. I was a baritone in the Seattle Opera chorus for two summers, performing the works of Richard Wagner,” he says. Naturally, he’s a loyal Seahawks fan and roots for his alma mater team, the WWU Vikings. Aside from catching a few games, Leo also loves to write screenplays for movies or TV shows in his spare time. Kyra points out, “[He] cleverly describes himself on his LinkedIn profile as a ‘left brain thinker, right brain tinker,’ which I think aptly describes his dual skill sets as both an accomplished Systems Administrator and a talented creative writer.” Leo adds that he is also “philosophical, with a generous helping of dad jokes”. Although he doesn’t have any kids of his own yet, he considers himself a proud father of two very spoiled cats, Penny and Mona.
Recently, Leo has been exploring the Los Angeles life as a new resident to SoCal. He moved down to the city last summer with a professional chocolate chip cookie baker who also happens to be the love of his life, Kelsey. The two have been married for 7 years and spend an equal amount of time spoiling their fur children. We are so excited for your big move to LA and can’t wait to see what else is in store for you with Crescent. Thank you for always contributing 110% to your job, Leo, we are so glad to have the opportunity to partner with you! Keep up the great work!
