Spotted on a typical New York Friday Night: Dinner with friends and off to bed. Sorry, not so up to date on the club scene. I’m 38 years old and I am not really into parties these days.

Hey Michael! We’re fans. What’s are you guys heating up this summer?
Thank you very much, guys. Well, we produce two movies a month. The same schedule goes for summer and we will definitely shoot in the Fire Island Pines, where I have a beautiful house. It will be a part of my Fire Island Cruising series.

Nice. You’re going to Israel this May. How long are you going for?
I will be having this trip hopefully every five to six months.

Tell us about your trip
I think it will be a wonderful trip because I travel to Israel at least twice a year and I know it very well. I’ve also partnered with one of the biggest Israeli travel agencies that has a gay division. We are going to be visiting Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Ga’ash Beach, Jaffa, and so many other exciting sites.

What are some of your favorite places in Israel?
I love Tel Aviv. It reminds me of New York, but cozier and warmer. I love the Golan Heights and the Sea of Galilee. It’s astonishingly beautiful.

This is your first time taking a group over there. What gave you the idea?
I’ve taken lots of friends to Israel, and they loved it and always wanted to return. But this is the first time I’m taking a group.

Where are you guys staying while you’re there?
We’ll be lodging at  luxury hotels such as the Alexander Full Suite Hotel in Tel Aviv and the Prima Royale in Jerusalem.

Will you boys get a chance to meet up with the stars from the Lucas Entertainment’s Inside Israel, Men of Israel or Israeli Auditions videos?
Absolutely. The whole trip is hosted by me and Jonathan Agassi.

What does the rest of your summer look like?
I’m going to Oxford in June for a debate about gay rights and spending July and August between New York and Fire Island. I’ll be filming in Argentina in September.
