Our markets


  • Q: Tell us about why you chose PwC San Francisco.

    A: I grew up about an hour south of Seattle and then went to college in Seattle so I wanted to start my career by venturing out and moving to a new city. San Francisco and Seattle have the same West Coast vibe; Seattle is just a much smaller market, so I have had a lot of fun adjusting.

  • Q: So your career path at PwC has been a little unique, hasn’t it?

    A: Yes, I started in Tax in asset management and then in 2010 I branched out to insurance. I developed a particular interest in corporations, and I heard that there were opportunities for that in insurance. The complexities of the Tax process interested me so I jumped at the chance to help out.

  • Q: And you found a practice that was a good fit for you?

    A: I did. I took about two years exploring different options and that helped me decide what I really wanted to do. I decided to end up “majoring” in asset management and I am “minoring” in video game clients.
