Andrey joined us this year all the way from Israel! Born in Uzbekistan, Andrey grew up in Russia and immigrated to Israel when he was eight years old.  He served in the IDF in a special forces paratrooper unit and studied Middle Eastern and Islamic history and Asian Studies at the University of Haifa.

Andrey loves playing guitar and traveling the world (He’s been to 29 countries!). He speaks Hebrew, Russian, Arabic and English. Andrey is so excited to bring Israel to Pittsburgh!
