He was born in October of 1988 in Santa Monica, the son of Cynthia Gates and Israel Carmeli. He attended the La Canada Flintridge schools and upon graduation, he went to the Marshall School of Business at USC in Los Angeles and graduated in 2011. During his tenure at USC, he spent a semester abroad at Erasmus University in Rotterdam.
