As an 8-year-old moving to the US with my family, I could never have imagined my life as it is now. I could not have imagined that I would end up at school in the very flat state of Iowa. I could not have imagined my first job would be as an Analytics Consultant in Washington, D.C., and I could not have imagined I would be living in beautiful Seattle with my lovely wife and going on exciting adventures to different corners of the world!
Wherever I ended up going or whatever I ended up doing, the two things that have driven me to succeed are the people I’ve connected with and the unique experiences I’ve been lucky to have had. And this is what eventually led to my decision to join the Coppei family. The deep and meaningful connections I instantly built with my colleagues have opened up a fantastic support network I can lean on in both my professional and personal life. Being able to work with genuinely cool people who ultimately become your friends makes Coppei an awesome workplace. The adventures we have been able to share together (Fun First Fridays, Iron Chef Competition, Family BBQs, Boat Racing on Lake Union, Snowboarding Offsites, Micro Brewery Pub Crawls, Seafair Blue Angel Party, Coppei Hackathons, Coppei Philanthropy Events, etc.) have helped me learn from and about my colleagues who have so many different skills, abilities, and interests. Both of these things ultimately make me confident that we have the right people I can learn from, grow with, and lean on as I progress in my career to be the best advisor I can for my clients.
At the end of the day, we all love being part of a community and that is what Coppei is to me – a community that enables me to be the best person I can be.
I am passionate about building a community, and I am Coppei!
