Bio: David Michalowski, originally from Chicago, now resides in NYC and is running a multimedia business, DM Multimedia, since 1997.  He graduated from New York University (B.A.) in Art Studio & Art History and RIT (M.F.A.) in Interactive Media.  He is married to his college sweetheart, Sheryl Eisenberg, a proud father of three children and a cool Saba of 2 grandchildren.  He was very active in Baltimore Jewish community, where children attended Yeshiva (Jewish school).

At the height of the Second Israel-Lebanon war in 2005, where a missile hit near my daughter’s campground, I decided to pursue advocating for Israel’s right to exist as well as campaigning against anti-Israel and anti-Zionist groups such as BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) through social media. This prompted me to develop a PowerPoint presentation to provide truthful information to Deaf community about the Middle East conflict.
