I would describe myself as caring, family oriented, active and adventurous. I love to travel and have been to numerous countries around the world (Including Israel). Athletics are a huge part of my life. I have been snow skiing since I was 2 years old and played baseball through college. I am a strongly opinionated person but respect the viewpoints of others. One of the most true statements I have ever read is if you stand for everything then you stand for nothing. I am a strong supporter of Israel and hope to spend a significant period of time there at some point in my life. I joined the Navy to train as a pilot in April of 2002, and after 2 deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan flying the F/A-18C/E Hornet/Super Hornet, and an instructor tour, I am now about to enter my first year at Harvard Business School.
