Executive Assistant to CEO
Akshai was born to an Indian father and a Jewish-American mother in Battery Park, NY, before promptly being whisked away to Palo Alto, CA after half a year of living. He then moved to London, UK (yes, he does have a slight accent, though it is more an amalgamation of ambiguous dialects than a true British drawl) for a seven-and-a-half-year sabbatical before returning to the U.S. with his family in 2009 and settling in Oakland, CA.
Fearing he was becoming too much of a California surfer bro, Akshai returned to the east coast for college and completed his bachelor’s degree in Public Relations from Boston University in December 2020. He currently resides in Bellevue, WA and joined EOS in June 2022. He promises he sounds far less academic in conversational speech; he just writes quite pretentiously (blame the British elementary school curriculum).
Acceptable nicknames include Akshizl, Akshizl Wadwizl, the Hinjew, and the Prince of Posture; additional nicknames will be considered upon request. Akshai is a strong believer in open-mindedness, humility, honest self-depiction, the First Amendment, and living life without complexity. He enjoys heavy metal music, stand-up comedy, sharks, spikeball, pasta, and Thesaurus.
