Community participation

I am a board member and finance committee member of Gesher Disability Resources.

I support several local non-profit organizations including Family Promise, ARCH (Arizona Recreation Center for the Handicapped), Archway Scottsdale, Scottsdale Prepratory Academy, Valley Beit Midrash, Smile on Seniors, Friendship Circle, Pappas Kids School Foundation, and Child Crisis Nursery.

I am a member of the Young Jewish Funders of Arizona giving circle, a group of 10 business professionals committing a total of $100,000 to philanthropy in 2014 and 2015.


My family and my 2 children. Traveling to our favorite destinations, and some new ones each year to broaden their appreciation of the world.

I am involved in multiple philanthropic endeavors both locally, and abroad.

I'm an avid outdoorsman and mountain biking enthusiast.

In 2018, I set a long term goal to ride every inch of the 800 mile Arizona Trail that runs from the Utah-Arizona border to the Arizona-Mexico border. My goal is to complete the AZ Trail before my 50th birthday. (2020 update: I've completed 250 miles and have 550 miles to go)
