I am the founder of Adventures at the Table, a gourmet dining society for business executives and the professionals who serve them.  I have organized over 70 multi-course wine dinners much to the delight of my guests. I was inspired by my father who took me on fine dining adventures in France when I was a boy.
 
I am the father of Sasha Cohen (the Silver Medalist in Figure Skating at the Turin Olympics) and Natasha Cohen (world traveler to Nepal, India, Peru and Bali in search of wisdom healing practices and plant medicine).  My mother was an art historian who inspired me with her quest to visit over 100 countries to record and catalogue the world’s art and culture.
 
Enjoy photography, world travel and preparing multi-course (but healthy) dinners for family and friends.

Exemplar Companies is like a mini version of a Big Four Consulting firm but with a better corporate culture and an exclusive focus on revolutionary emerging growth companies making a positive impact on the plant. Exemplar has legal, international and US tax, accounting, strategy and operations consulting, technology and investment banking practice groups. The firm has developed a unique compensation and practice model that actually encourages all these professionals to align their services to achieve one objective: high value services to ensure client success. They have also pioneered a unique client centric delivery model called “Flexpertise” with monthly low cost pricing to access to the entire team of experts and fixed fees for scoped projects. (After 20 years practicing law and 15 years consuming professional services, I am very bullish on the Exemplar approach as I am acutely aware of the gap between how most attorneys deliver legal services and client needs.
