Investing in early-stage ventures at my micro-fund, Jumpspeed Ventures.

I'm an entrepreneur-friendly venture enthusiast who co-founded my first startup in 1999. Between stints as a business development executive with a number of private equity ventures and startup companies, I was a Vice President of Business Development at IDT Corp. (NYSE: IDT), where I managed acquisition projects and established and managed a number of new corporate subsidiaries and startup ventures.

I started my professional career as a corporate lawyer in New York and Israel and as a Clerk on the Israel Supreme Court for Justice Yitzchak Zamir. I earned a B.A. in Economics from Yeshiva University, and a J.D. with honors from Columbia Law School. I grew up in Allentown, PA and I live in Jerusalem with my wife and seven children. I seem to enjoy running long distances.
