Mischa Szpirt was born in 1983 into a religious home, however he spent most of his teenage years at a Christian boarding school. Losing most of his religious practices, he somehow managed to still keep a strong Jewish identity. In 2004, after completing high school, Mischa volunteered for the Danish army. After a year and a half he ended his service as a sergeant in the HM Queens Royal Guard. He participated on Birthright in 2007 and ROI in 2008. After the army, he studied physics and was highly active in the Danish-Jewish Community. Mischa is currently studying techno-anthropology, which is a cross over of natural science, STS and anthropology. He is currently working as a communications leader for the not-for-profit Retro Association. The organization has just opened its first nonprofit restaurant, cooking mostly with surplus food from supermarkets and suppliers. Currently, Mischa is working on integrating internal communications for the organization’s many projects.
