I was born and raised in a secular Jewish home. I loved the arts, athletics and became a personal fitness trainer. At the age of 24 I moved to Israel where I learned Hebrew and worked in a kibbutz in the southern Negev. I spent 13 years in Israel and there I met my wife Yael. We have 3 boys and are now living in the San Francisco Bay Area where I serve as a full time missionary with Jews for Jesus.
