Born in Israel, came to the US, got dissatisfied with school, decided to change the world. Now I teach and make and write and code.

I prefer the company of children. Cool Hand Luke is my hero. If I could date any fictional character, it would be Stargirl or Christine Jesperson. I am the happiest person I know. I fly planes. People can do more than they think. Everything will be OK. I’m going to revolutionize education.
