Director of Product at a Softare Startup
An awesome place I've visited:
Spent 3 days digging declassified WW2 espionage-related documents, microfilms, and maps at the National Archives in DC.
My perfect Sunday:
Coffee, rock climbing, and aussie-burger in Brooklyn with friends.
The movie I've watched the most times:
Probably La Vita e Bella (Life is Beautiful), but there's a chance it's still Robin Hood: Men in Tights since high school.
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
I have a degree in History, and some great plans to write the next big historical novel. In the meantime I'm working as Director of Product at a really cool software startup in the city. I moved to NYC from Israel 6 years ago. Back in Israel, I was a journalist and later an editor at a leading technology magazine. I continue to be very involved with science and technology. I am self-directed, negentropic, and supernovic.
My first concert / My dream concert:
Dream concert: Tim Minchin. And I just came back from his concert in DC! (If you don't know who Tim Minchin is, now would be the time to Google him.)
Obscure knowledge I possess:
I know Krav Maga. It's a martial art developed by the Israeli army. As you can imagine it's highly aggressive. I studied it from about age 10 to 20.
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
Are not afraid to geek out.
For me, a first date no-no is:
Crying. Especially at something I've said. Seriously, that would make me very uncomfortable.
I secretly want to be:
Playing a villain in a Broadway musical.
