What are you happiest doing outside of work?
I very much like to spend my time playing, but mostly watching, all kinds of sports. I have been a supporter of Maccabi Haifa since I was young, and my favorite pastime is watching a good soccer or basketball game with friends. In my spare time, I also have my own sports podcast, giving me more opportunities to talk about my favorite thing!
