Client Solutions Manager
But what do you actually do at Alight?
I work with our clients, helping manage their projects and ensuring the work is getting done correctly and on time!
What did you do before you came to Alight?
I worked at DST Systems as a relationship manager for mutual fund companies.
You like working with marketers because …
I like that marketing is, in part, understanding human behavior amongst a slew of many variables. It is fascinating.
What do you do when you aren’t at work?
I love to play disc golf and eat great food. My wife and I are the proud staff of three cats, so you can find me hanging out at home with the family a lot as well. Luckily for my overall health, my food lust is juxtaposed by the joy I find in the gym.
People are always surprised to learn that you …
Don’t like McDonald’s breakfast.
What’s your go-to karaoke song?
I enjoy being Timon in a duet of “Hakuna Matata,” but I can do the Pumbaa part some justice. By myself, I usually end up singing “Miss You” by Blink 182.
You’re a ride-or-die fan of …
Original Tabasco Sauce
If you could instantly eradicate one food forever, what would it be?
“Fat free” half-and-half. It’s nonsensical.
If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?
I would most likely work an extra job at night in hopes of retiring in my 40s.
The zombie apocalypse just started. What’s your game plan?
I’d scoop up my wife and cats and head to IKEA. I would cook up several dozen cinnamon rolls, grab a pallet of bottled water, and create a living room/bedroom on one of the top shelves in their storage area. We would fend off climbing zombies with curtain rods. I say this because I don’t think many people would go to IKEA, and I’ve watched enough zombie material to know that the living are worse than the dead when resources become scarce.
