The Adventurer

Mekhi, aka Kai, is known for being passionate about many different things. From recently taking up the violin to being passionate about saving the oceans, to nestling up with a good book, Kai loves discovering the vast richness of the world around him. One of his fondest memories is having the chance to play violin with an orchestra right near where Beethoven used to live in Vienna. Growing up outside of Philadelphia, his first job was helping sell pretzels. Playing sports has been a key part of his life from a young age. He first learned how to tackle people much bigger and stronger than him at eight years old, eventually playing the position of cornerback on Franklin & Marshall’s college football team in Pennsylvania. Other passions Kai has include never turning down a party invitation or social event and going on adventures with his Yorkipoo, Lexi

As someone who is results-oriented and greatly admires those who excel under hardship, Kai is an analyst within our technology and professional services practice. Here, he does analytical research to identify C-level executives who satisfy our clients’ desires. He utilizes software to pinpoint the perfect candidate in an ever-evolving market. Kai’ s insights help establish a robust basis for team execution. 

Prior to Acertitude, Kai worked as a front desk agent for a resort, ensuring a positive guest experience. He has a bachelor’s in Economics from Franklin & Marshall College.

Kai lives in Burlington, New Jersey. In his spare time, he volunteers for a Caymans-based marine biology program supporting schools, helping clean up beaches, and assisting in the rescue of marine life.
