“I was born into a Jewish Family in New York City. After my Bar Mitzvah I focused on Science and sports and attended Florida Institute of Technology to Study Astronomy and Physics. I heard the Gospel as a Graduate Student. I worked as an Aerospace Engineer for two years doing orbit design on the Space Shuttle Program but eventually felt called to ministry. Jews for Jesus trained me in Los Angeles in 1983-1986. I continued Graduate Studies with Jews for Jesus and ended up serving in South Africa, Israel, and Germany and for the past 23 years in Canada. I practice martial arts and have a 3rd degree black belt in Shotokan Karate.”
