Hi, I'm Mike, I live in the South Bay but I'm up in the LA area several times a week. I just got back from a trip to Italy for 2.5 weeks then Israel for 7 months. I was already in love with the country and the people, but now I can kinda/sorta speak the language. Plus I know where all the good bars are now. I'm a former equestrian and college tennis player but over the past few years I've switched to beach volleyball. I love Costco and bad infomercials (my sister has been the lucky recipient of everything from the Chia-head to Pajama-jeans). I love to cook (I'm told I make a mean kugel) and do handyman type stuff and I've been told I'm not the typical LA guy, which I take as a compliment. I am a very loyal person and I know its cliche, but my word is my bond. I love Israel, and I've been told that I'm the most Israeli American they've ever met, I'm not sure if it's meant as a compliment but I take it as one. I know that "evil will always triumph because good is dumb" and if you know what I'm referring to we'll get along just fine.
