Life & Career Milestones

My path in life has been direct

  • 1.

    Grew up in Israel and spent five years in the army after he finished high school.

  • 2.

    After finishing his time in the military, he traveled around South America for a year.

  • 3.

    When he came back, he knew he'd have to enroll in college; picked architecture solely because the course started last, letting him travel more.

  • 4.

    Says he second-guesses himself everyday: "should I stay here [in America] or should I go back home?"

  • 5.

    What keeps him in the U.S. is his great love for his job.

  • 6.

    Says his job is fun because he gets to "make statements" with his buildings.

  • 7.

    If he can accomplish 30% of all of the goals and dreams he has in his head, he'll consider himself successful.

  • 8.

    Says if you have a passion, you might have to be okay with "not having the new iPhone," not being financially set, but you'll be happy.
