Where do you work, and what is your role?
I work for Amazon as a Financial Analyst, providing deep-dive financial support for the ARS (Amazon Robotics Sortable) Network which is Earth’s largest customer fulfillment network of 80+ buildings, employing over 300,000 associates and accounting for 80% of Amazon fulfilled volumes in the United States
What is an average day of life like for you when you’re working at TV?
I like to start with a large Peet’s coffee at AXIS Coffee Bar + Eatery (my productivity skyrockets whenever I have it, must be something in the water!) then I drop off lunch for my wife Samantha who’s a Poppy Sales Agent for McCaffrey Homes. Once I’m finished for the day, I’ll bike around the trails to give my mind a well-deserved break. Afterwards I’d enjoy whatever is on tap and play a bit of online chess at AXIS.
How do you “Play” at Tesoro Viejo?
I grew up in rural northwest Pennsylvania surrounded by dairy farms, playing with friends and family in nature. Tesoro Viejo has so much nature to explore and enjoy, along with activities such as bird watching or Live on the Lawn [outdoor concert series] – all of which help me disconnect from the day-to-day grind and reconnect with the greater things in life.
What excites you most about living here?
Every year for the last 9 years, I’ve moved to various different apartments, so I’m excited to finally have a place to call home.
Is there anything you’d like to share?
It was always a dream of mine to be able to walk my future children to school and for them to receive a world-class educational experience. With Hillside Elementary School being situated as the heart of the community, it validated to me that Tesoro Viejo also shares this same vision, and I’m excited to see how these future students go on to make a positive difference in the world.
