26 years old and on the path to becoming a grown man, Steve Rubin is in his second year of studies at Tel Aviv University as a Masters student in Diplomacy. Unfortunately, he does not feel like he is mastering anything at all – accept for the art of blogging. Rubin grew up in Philadelphia before gracing the halls of the University of Oregon in Eugene. His plan was to become a sports journalist until he moved to Israel and realized that he did not have the energy to write newspaper articles in his non-native Hebrew. He loves to eat breakfast 3 times a day and has an affinity for hummus with mushrooms. What a guy!
