School Story:

Loved NE and played a lot of sports there. Loved being a part of the football program, ice hockey program along with Tennis and Golf Teams.

I remember Jeff Petty as one of my favorite faculty members and I never took any of his classes.

I also remember Mr Kotter's tv show and how much it reminded me of Mr Graybar's class.

I remember moving Mr Graybar's car to the student lot when he asked me to put the final papers from his class in his car in the faculty lot. Seemed funny then until the police couldn't find his car.

What is the Furthest You've Been From Home?

Traveled a lot since High school. Been all over Asia, Middle East and Europe. I have not visited Australia yet or Fiji Islands. On my bucket list.

Please list major life achievements

Raising our family

What Do You Do In Your spare Time?

I love to volunteer for Maccabi USA, the Jewish Olympic team program. I am also very proud to be the president of Elminda USA, an Israeli medical technology company with ground breaking efforts in Brain science.

Who Did You Have A Crush On, Date, Or Marry From High School?

I dated the same girl all through high school and she later married another NE graduate who is older than me but a really good guy. No other real crushes in NE.

What Teacher or High School class Influenced You In Your Life?

I really liked Jeff Petty as an art teacher and I never took art. I photographed our school plays and he was very involved in the school plays and impressed me a ton.

Your favorite vehicle?

In those days in was a Datsun 280Z, today is my Tesla.

Billy Joel, James Taylor in those days and maybe still today.

Ed Shearan

Interesting places where you lived

Lived in Chicago since leaving Philly. Great city like Philly built on ethnic neighborhoods

High school friends you still speak with regulary.

not too many in this class but others.

Cool people you have met

Too many to think of from Presidents to high profile Sports personalities. I spent years in Professional sports and had the privilege to be with the Flyers, Sixers, and Fever teams in Philly before coming to Chicago to work in sports here.

Any words of wisdom

Live every day, you never know what can happen, not a new one but a true one that I have had to experience from both sides.
