Bloom is a successful professional and former athlete; he is a member of the U.S. Skiing Hall of Fame, a two-time Olympian, an eleven-time World Cup gold medalist, and a three-time World Champion. He won six World Cup events in 2005, setting new records for the most records in one season since the sport began.

He earned a degree in real estate and finance as part of the business entrepreneurship program with Wharton Business School. Seven years ago, Bloom started MDinfo.com, which is a health portal that establishes a dialogue between average people and health experts around the world. He also became a co-founder of Integrate, the first advertising technology supplier that allows media buyers to launch, plan, optimize, and analyze their marketing campaigns.
