Thank you to David and the team at the Jewish Journal for highlighting so many of my stories! I was in PRINT all four weeks in October! Thanks to Brett Barenholz for saving the print copies for me!

I am working on articles to share but please enjoy these brand new videos including when I drove a bulldozer, climbed a wall, went in a gondola, flew in a helicopter to the Grand Canyon and partied with DJ Snake at the new club, Zouk, at Resorts World Las Vegas!
