Avi is a polymath - he enjoys photography, designing, quizzing, playing music at house parties, inventing stuff, learning new languages, playing videogames, flying drones, cooking, and he does many of these professionally as well.  

Random Fact: Avi is obsessed with the color orange. So much that every film of his has a significant element that is orange. Even his Production house Erango is an anagram of the word orange.
