Ron is an entrepreneur, artist, and leadership development expert currently based in Los Angeles, CA. He was born in Israel and raised in the U.S. until the age of 15 when he returned to Israel with his family. Following high school, Ron proudly led his men as a commander of one of the world's most technologically advanced battle tanks. During the Second Lebanon War (2006), he suffered a severe spinal cord injury that forced him to unexpectedly restart and recalibrate his life in a new and unfamiliar wheelchair-bound state. While on a grueling journey of self-discovery and relearning how to live life in the face of his circumstances, Ron proceeded to achieve great things, such as completing his B.A. in business from IDC, graduating from the renowned ZELL Entrepreneurship Program, rising to fame as a musical artist on the television show A Star is Born, serving as an active director of a veteran American nonprofit where he helped raise over $40 million, and trained and developed himself as a leadership coach in the world's leading personal and profession development organization, Landmark Worldwide. Ron's endeavors are always aligned with his personal life mission: to acheive peace in the Middle East in our lifetime. Today he is working on a venture that will transform the rehabilitation industry by establishing a network of vibrantly designed rehabilitative-fitness centers for people with physical disabilities that will empower them to live a life that they love.
