Inspector

A man of many talents, Lior was born in Rishon Le’Zion, Israel and moved to Maryland with his family when he was young. A graduate of Towson University, Lior was awarded a departmental achievement award in recognition of his undergraduate honors thesis in psychology. Growing up, he learned how to read and play music as a pastime. Initially, he started with the violin and guitar; he now plays the drums, bass guitar and taught himself to play piano.

Still on his bucket list is to travel and see the Scandinavian countries, learn to play the Lute, and see the Northern lights.
