At AG Consulting Partners, we are honored to work with a diverse group of people with a variety of talents and interests. This month, we are highlighting Matthew Shi to learn more about his work and passions outside of the office.
What’s your background? Where did you grow up and go to school?
I’m one of those rare Seattle-ites that was born and raised in Seattle. I used to go to a day care in Pike Place Market, elementary school at Kimball, middle school at Hamilton, high school at Roosevelt and college at Seattle Pacific.
Can you tell me about your current project?
Making improvements to a tracking tool for several teams at a technology company, as well as auditing the data for consistency, completeness, and accuracy.
What’s an interesting job you’ve had before?
I was a rowing coach for Seattle Pacific University for 7 years.
What’s your favorite place in the world and why?
Hong Kong. I have lots of family there and love the history and food, but recent events make me concerned for Hong Kong’s future.
What is one activity on your bucket list?
Freediving and spearfishing.
If you had to eat one meal, every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?
A family recipe. Maybe wonton soup.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I have an endless list of hobbies and almost everything interests me. Lately it’s been escaping outdoors with a run, bike, hike, or swim. Otherwise I’m attempting to make something from scratch: e.g. breads, beef wellington, beef brisket sous vide or tinkering with something that’s broken.
