I've spent the last dozen years or so getting a couple of grad degrees, forming a couple firms, and meeting incredible people. Most of my friends would describe me as a cool geek with fun proclivities. I grew up in Chicago with a few years in Israel, and my demeanor is definitely Midwestern (not Mideastern). The pictures are recent, and I really am 5'10" (not sure why guys lie about that one . . . it's so obvious).
