Amon Rappaport leads Strategic Development and splits his time between our San Diego Headquarters and our LA office. Talk to Amon once and you’ll learn he’s a man with a purpose. Let’s learn a little more about him.
When you were 10 years old, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A social cause you care deeply about and why?
Economic opportunity for U.S. immigrants. My great-grandparents, and one grandmother, were immigrants. My wife is an immigrant. And I helped a friend immigrate from Senegal. For some reason, he named his son Amon.
If you could earn a living doing anything else, what would it be?
Covert operations for a government I believe in
You can invite 3 people from either present day or history to break bread with, who would it be and why?
My grandfather who passed when I was young, and a great-grandparent and great-great-grandparent I never knew. I’d love to learn about their life and see how mine was influenced and made possible by them.
In 5 words, describe yourself? (must use all 5…no more…no less)
