My Native AdVert

Career Snapshot:
I’m a tech entrepreneur and software engineer based in New York, currently working on a new startup in the healthcare space called Ezra (in stealth mode). I started my first company, Brainient, when I was 19 and spent the following 10 years building it into one of the leading ad-tech companies in Europe. Brainient was acquired by Teads in September 2016 and I then spent two years scaling the Brainient business unit (now called Teads Studio) globally. Outside work I enjoy spending time with my wife and learning new things. To address the latter, I’ve taken on a new experiment every year since 2008. Some of the most challenging and interesting ones were sleeping 2.5 hours per day for two months (polyphasic sleep), reading a book per week and training my memory with a world memory champion.

A Day in My Life:

What do you love most about Your City?

That you can leave NYC for 2 weeks, 2 months or 2 years, and when you come back it always feels the same, like it’s somehow stuck in time.

Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant?

I don’t eat breakfast.

What are you doing at:

6:00 AM – espresso & news

10:00 AM – first meeting of the day

12:00 PM – Favorite Lunch spot/meal?

Whatever is 30 seconds away from where I am currently located. Also, no lines. I hate lines.

7:00 PM – Dinner with my wife. Always. It’s the one thing I never compromise on.

11:00 PM – 4 out of 5 weekdays, I’m already sleeping.

2 espressos a day. Any more and I won’t be getting any sleep.
