We asked Kai some questions about themself, to get to know them a little better. Keep reading to see what they said.
What’s your favorite band?
One of my all-time favorite bands is Tame Impala, a pop-rock group from Australia.
You’re a Co-Director of a bike Co-op in New Haven. What’s that like?
It’s so fun and rewarding. I love biking and the bike community, and it feels great to be able to build up the community and get people on bikes across the city.
What’s your favorite taco filling?
The best taco I ever had was a grilled onion taco from Los Gorditos in PDX with grilled + fresh onions, lime, and cilantro.
If you could compete in any Olympic sport, which one would you choose?
I recently went ice-skating for the first time, and would love to give figure skating a try– it’s so graceful!
Do you have a mantra when it comes to technology projects?
“Work hard but work well” – I’m always looking for ways to improve processes and systems to help people be as effective as possible. By using technology to automate the repetitive stuff, I can help organizations focus on doing the work they’re best at and magnify their impact.
Welcome, Kai! We’re glad that we get to work with you.
