What Do You Enjoy Most About Your Job?

Logging into work every day is like stepping into the Star Wars Cantina—trading Asian markets is dynamic, exciting, tactical, and sometimes weird. I love that it keeps me on my toes and you really need to stay frosty to achieve the best execution, minimize costs, and eliminate slippage for our clients.


What Do You Enjoy Most About Working at KAR?

As with any firm, organization, or group of people—your colleagues become your second family whether you like it or not, so choose wisely. Luckily the people at KAR are top-notch and a stellar group of peers to be in the trenches with day in and day out.

What Are You Involved in Outside of Work?

Almost anything outside: skiing, surfing, rock climbing, hiking, camping, fly fishing. I love spending money on gear and my garage rivals any REI.
