Growing up in both NYC and Tel Aviv, multiculturalism has always been engrained in Deevee’s DNA. Throughout his time at NYU and for many years after, he produced some of the most talked-about events and parties around the world, owning and operating the exclusive Never Never and Up&Down Nightclubs in NYC. Deevee knew his involvement in the nightclub world, and with the people in it, could be leveraged for something bigger, and in the Spring of 2015 he decided to find a way to mobilize his highly influential network of tastemakers for the greater good. He was quickly discouraged by the grueling process. Why is it, that in this day and age, when you can get anything delivered to your door with the tap of a button, you have to jump through hoops to help your local community? This drove Deevee to launch DEED – the app that connects people with local volunteer opportunities, instantly. DEED’s community of volunteers in NYC is in the tens of thousands, and its presence in LA is catching up. DEED has been covered in Vogue, Brooklyn Magazine, Complex, ABC News, Domino, Timeout NY and others.

A native New Yorker, Anthony is a flower shirt aficionado whose wardrobe can best be described as “purple rain”. After graduating from Carnegie Mellon and starting his career in finance as a spreadsheet monkey, he quit his job to travel the world.
