Michael Braun is originally from the Washington, DC area and was inspired to found Jew York Social after his own experiences of looking for events after the move to New York. By day, he is a software engineer at Bloomberg. By night, he competes in a competitive karaoke league. He is a graduate of the University of Maryland (undergrad) where he sang with the Jewish a cappella group Kol Sasson and Johns Hopkins University (graduate), in both cases studying computer science. He is excited to connect with more Jews in New York!
Andrew Casper grew up down in the land of crab cakes and football, Maryland (I know, so not Kosher, but so so delicious)!! He was raised in a Jewish home and was extremely active in youth group (gonna live and die N-F-T-Y), as well as spending multiple years at Jewish summer camps. He moved to upstate New York to pursue a degree in television production and in addition to classes, Andrew held numerous positions on the executive student board at his College Hillel, as well as re-founding an AEPi chapter. Currently, Andrew works full-time in broadcast media and on the side hosts numerous events for Jews in their 20s in Murray Hill. Living in the Big Apple is one the best things that could happen – there are so many Jewish places to visit, Jewish people to meet, and Jewish activities to do!
