THINGS YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT AVI
He loves cooking (I spend a lot of time in the kitchen cooking for my family and friends), cars (I read a lot about new automotive technologies and models), music and sports.
He’s very good with his hands: “I can fix almost anything from electrical appliances to building a drywall.”
One of the people he finds particularly inspiring is Arnold Schwarzenegger: “He’s a man who started out as a bodybuilder, moved to the US from Austria without any money, went on to win 7 Mr. Olympia titles, starred in over 38 movies, became a very successful business man and was elected the 38th Governor of California. He’s a man who was driven to succeed and ultimately conquered virtually all of his ambitions.” Avi tries to get to the gym almost every day 🙂
One of his favorite mantras to live by is “Don’t worry, be happy.”
