Ari Eisenstadt


Deep thinker. Excitable nerd. Empathetic listener. Absent-minded singer. Certifiable goofball.

Ari Eisenstadt is our resident Analyst. He makes sure that we know what we’re talking about before we start speaking. He supports our team with research and our clients with strategy and operations. He is an aggregator, synthesizer, and presenter of information and an easy target when we’re looking for someone onto whom to dump our brains.

Ari comes to Third Plateau with a varied background and it’s hard to fit him in a box. Trained in permaculture, he worked on a Jewish urban farm in Berkeley and managed an educational garden in Malibu. As a participant in the Coro Fellows Program in Public Affairs, Ari collaborated with various clients in the St. Louis area on projects varying from reviewing web platforms to generating disposition plans for vacant land. Ari has a B.A. in Physics from Washington University and has worked with particle physics data from the Large Hadron Collider. He also taught a conversational English workshop for Chilean middle school students, interpreted for Spanish-speaking clients for a worker’s comp attorney, and tutored students in math and physics for over six years.

He loves to read (in multiple languages), sing (constantly), be outside, play games, and talk about random things. If you get excited about something, chances are high that Ari will get excited with you. Ari lives in Berkeley and counts himself lucky to be able to go up in the hills and watch the sun set over the Pacific.
