Personal: Most thrilling moment of his athletic career was winning the NCAA Championship his freshman year ... Most influential person in his athletic career is his fencing coach, Alexey Cheremsky, because, "He is the reason why I came to the U.S." ... Came to St. John's because of its great athletic legacy ... If he weren't fencing, he'd be in Israel ... The teammate that inspires him is Evgeniya Kirpicheva for: "Being such a hard-working individual" ... Since coming to St. John's, he's learned how to manage his time ... Majoring in Accounting ... Favorite food is cheeseburgers ... favorite TV show is Family Guy ... favorite pro team is the New England Patriots ... Parents are Alexander and Margolit Israelian ...
