30 Apr Meet team member- David raab
No one knows too much about David Raab. He has been with NPI for just over a year, but still hasn’t brought a potted plant from home for his desk. An International Man of Mystery, it’s rumored he had his humble beginnings in Seattle, before spending the next few decades in places that are Not Washington.
Born a natural computer fixing prodigy and predisposed towards geekery and nerdisms, David exited high school with dreams of college. While flirting with community college unsuccessfully, he blundered ass-backwards into a map making career for a petroleum services company. He spent several years in the exciting rough and tumble oil industry before setting his sights on a cleaner, greener place to live.
When he made his re-entrance to polite society, he debuted in Olympia, WA and settled down for a few years before migrating up I-5 to Seattle. Upon moving, he was snatched up by NPI, and now you know the story. Well, most of it.
When not spinning tall tales, David likes to play games of all kinds, hike, read, and bake. He lives with three whole cats and his lovely wife.
