Occupation/Credentia ls: I am a professional in the finance industry and design processes, policies, and procedures for one of the Big Four banks, as well as actively manage my own personal investment portfolio. I hold an AAS in International Business, BA in Finance, and MBA in Management, as well as hold several finance and business certifications.
Hobbies/Activities: I would consider myself a foodie as well as a wine, spirit, and mixology enthusiast. I appreciate and enjoy going to nice restaurants, and also enjoy wine and spirit tasting. I am an excellent cook, from years of watching my talented mother and father. I am a cinephile, Film/Television history buff, and I visit the theatre quite frequently.
Jewish background: I am ethnically descended from Eastern European Jews on both sides of the family, specifically Austro-Hungarian region of Eastern Europe. My grandfather was Orthodox and my mother had a religious upbringing. Culturally I identify as a secular-atheistic Jew. I am well educated on Judaism as a religion and Jewish History, and had a Bar Mitzvah. I do not follow or accept many aspects of Jewish religion,but I do appreciate the historical aspects of my heritage and traditions passed down, and wish to uphold those traditions with my own children if I ever have any.
