Birthright 2012: A Voyage into the Heart and Soul of Israel
“Birthright 2012” is a personal account of my voyage throughout Israel. The outer story incorporates humor, science, history, and my own observations as I explore the land. It should appeal to the armchair traveler who would like to experience the country but is unable to and also to anyone who would like to learn more about this bastion of democracy in the Middle East. Beneath this outer story there exists an inner story. Filled with humor, philosophy, and poetry, this underlying aspect of the book follows my own personal voyage to self-awareness. “Birthright 2012” chronicles the daily activities of my University of Miami Birthright trip to Israel. Each chapter highlights a single day’s events, activities, and sights. The book is chock-full of deep personal insights, light humorous anecdotes, witty observations, and scientific and historical facts. I hope you will follow me on my journey through the Land of Milk and Honey.

My Masters Project in Marine Affairs, that assesses and compares the conservation policies that protect billfish – marlin, sailfish, and swordfish – in the United States, the Bahamas, and Jamaica. Through the use of ArcGIS (Geographic Information Systems) and a matrix/checklist of 78 distinct criteria, I determine which of the three countries could serve best as a model for highly migratory species regulation in the English-speaking areas of the Caribbean region. In July 2015, I presented my findings at the ESRI (Environmental Systems Research Institute) User Conference in San Diego, before an international audience.
