A Bit About Me

I've built startups, invested in them, and even sold one. I thrive on creating products and technologies that improve the way people live.

A lifelong entrepreneur, I have started small businesses since before I could reach the kitchen counter.

While I am not a programmer, I am passionate about using technology to dramatically improve the world we live in. I'm also an outspoken "lifehacker," avid speedreader, animal lover, fitness enthusiast, amateur photographer, and all-around eclectic.
A Silicon Valley Native, I am now proudly based in Tel Aviv.


I've built successful businesses in the eCommerce, retail, software, and online learning industries.

Advisor & Angel Investor

Occasionally, I invest in companies that make the world a better place. I've invested in 4 of them so far.

Unconventional MBA

Despite the fact that I am an entrepreneur at heart, I also hold an MBA from one of Europe's top institutions.

My Work

What I've Done

A true serial entrepreneur, I've enjoyed a great number of diverse projects over the last 10 years. Some have been wildly successful, many have not (after all, my blog is titled "Fail Harder"). From managing the product development of complex software software systems to overseeing leadership, I like to keep a full plate, and to work with creative and skilled people. I'm also a big proponent of passive income!


Having spent my entire career in entrepreneurship, with an added leg-up of accelerated learning, I am pleased to be able to offer one-on-one and group coaching on a number of subjects.


I am available to help guide you in your search for passive income, including escaping the 9-5, developing your personal brand story, choosing the right niche, overcoming your fears, and even branding and launching products.

Accelerated Learning

As some of the top teachers on the web today of speed reading, memory, and accelerated learning, both my partners and I have seen it all. For students with the budget, private coaching can be very useful in maximizing success.


I've developed a number of systems and strategies to increase personal productivity, and am often called upon to aid with things like goal setting, optimization, automation, planning, and of course, to keep clients accountable!

Life Coaching

Through my experience overcoming depression and ADD, I have developed a uniquely entrepreneurial and hacker-centric focus to self improvement and personal growth. Note: I am not a certified life coach.

To make the coaching experience more enjoyable for everyone involved, I exclusively coach students who show tremendous drive, ambition, and interest. I also offer a 100% money-back guarantee on my coaching services, and for this reason, all coaching students must be hand-approved by my assistant and I, and verified to ensure that it's a good fit.

My rates for private virtual coaching range from $500-1,000 an hour, and are available in packages of 4 half-hour sessions.
In-person coaching is available at a rate of $3,000 per day, plus expenses, nearly anywhere in the world.

Many young entrepreneurs are often driven to forego formal education. I feel very blessed to have been able to learn both in and out of some of the world's finest institutions of higher learning.
