Drew Goldberg was born on May 24, 1991 in Dallas, Texas and spent most of his youth in Scottsdale, Arizona. As a child, his family gave him the nickname ‘Binsky’ which stuck with him into adulthood. In 2009, he went on his first trip abroad to Israel.
In the first semester of his junior year of college, Goldberg enrolled in a study abroad program in Prague, Czech Republic. At college, he earned a degree in economics and entrepreneurship from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2013. While studying, he traveled to over 20 European countries.
