With my partners and by handpicking a dynamic team of colleagues, Shiraz is growing and is on its way to reaching new frontiers. And for that, I am grateful.”

Born and raised in Israel and residing in Miami, outside of the experiential world, Shai is a competitive show jumper who enjoys swimming and hot yoga.
