What do you do?
I co-founded an Israel and Jewish-themed apparel brand called One948. Since raising funds, my business partner Matt Stahm and I have ventured into the custom apparel/custom swag business. We now have the ability to create any logo-branded item imaginable. We proudly donate 10% of our profits toward nonprofits that support Israel. I also co-founded a company called Bowtiebags.

What do you bring with you?
Upon graduating Ohio State in 2011, I was a recruiter in the healthcare technology space for four years before leaving to pursue a couple entrepreneurship endeavors. As a recruiter, I came to quickly understand and appreciate the value of networking. The practice of connecting with others has gotten me to a good point with my own businesses.

Why Homrun?
Since the launch of One948, I’ve taken an interest in everything Israel. I’ve always been enthralled with entrepreneurship. Once I found out about Homrun and learned more about it, it was a no-brainer to join and try as best I can to add value in any way.
