After receiving my bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Pennsylvania in 2010, I moved to Israel to enlist in the Israeli Defense Forces. In 2013, I completed my three years of IDF service in Orev Givati, a specialized reconnaissance unit within the Givati Brigade. I hold the rank of staff sergeant and proudly serves alongside my team each year in the IDF Reserves.


Today, I live in the East Village of Manhattan with my brother, Russell. I am an Erickson certified professional coach, hold an Executive MBA from the Quantic School of Business and Technology, and am currently pursuing my Masters in Healthcare Innovation at The University of Pennsylvania. I was just certified as an EMT, and I work as an entrepreneur in the digital healthcare space.  My website and blog can be found at TheExaminedLife.NYC.
