My Story

Born in Israel, I moved to the U.S when I was 5 and discovered my love for sport. I played every sport until one day, I was watching TV when a triathlon came on. I was completely mesmerized. Since then, my dream is to travel around the world by competing in triathlons as a professional athlete.

Triathlon

In 2013, I represented Team USA at the World Maccabiah Games (Jewish Olympics). In 2014, I Competed for Team USA at the Junior Pan American Championships qualifier. In 2015, I Represented Team Israel at the World Championships. I am also the Founder, President, and Coach of my University's team!

Internship - Tamir Fishman Investment Firm, Tel Aviv 2015

My role was to create a database of Israeli high tech companies that the firm was interested in investing in. The database comprised of analysis, valuations, market share data, and more information of each firm. I also gave recommendations to the CEO and the General Partners about certain startups.

Traveling & Adventures

There has never been a time where I said no for a chance to travel or have some adventure. Travelling forces you to be open minded and understand the differences between cultures, making you a more well rounded person. While adventures forces you to challenge your fears and eventually overcome them.
