For several months, Dr. Berezow worked as Business Operations Manager for an education technology startup and as Business Development Manager for a biotech startup, both in the Seattle area.
Though he claims humble Midwestern roots and common sense values, in reality, he is often found spending an inordinate amount of money drinking fancy coffees (specifically, triple-shot, iced, vanilla lattes). He is also known to vacation frequently in Europe with his Polish-born wife.
Dr. Berezow also enjoys chess. (Test your wits with the Chess Puzzle on the right!) And the map below depicts his globetrotting adventurism.
