I am honored to serve on the Temple Israel of Hollywood Board of Trustees. My wife Sherise and I began our TIOH journey when our daughter Sophie was born as we sought a Jewish community our family could call home. Sherise and I both grew up in the neighborhood, attended Hancock Park Elementary School together and met again years later on a blind date. Sophie and Sherise began with Parent and Me and Sophie continued with TIOH pre-school and then graduated from the day school. Sophie was actively involved in HoTY and served as the Co-President in her senior year. Over the last several years I have participated on TIOH’s finance committee and have previously served on the Nominating Committee. Professionally, I am a Managing Director focusing on corporate taxation at Deloitte LLP, a global professional services firm.
