He joined Aspiriant in 2014 as a Director, working with entrepreneurs and business owners on their personal balance sheets as part of the family office team.

As a sports reporter, he covered the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona and was asked to participate as a torchbearer in the ceremonial torch relay. Orin has made service to the community a central part of his life and was honored by the California governor’s office proclaiming a day to be named in his honor for his charitable work throughout Central California.
Originally from Long Island, New York, Orin started working in his teen-age years as a Jones Beach lifeguard. Orin and his wife, Michele, now reside in Los Angeles and are the parents of two wonderful children.
