Anyway, now that I've got your attention.
I've been in NY for 7+ years now. I came to study film at NYU after finishing my mandatory army service in Israel (believe it or not, it was through my service in the army that I got into filmmaking). I graduated a few years ago but I feel quite at home in NY and don't see myself leaving in the near future. I feel very lucky to say that I can do work that I love and not be a starving artist.
I'd consider myself a creative intellectual type. But at the same time I'm fairly grounded. I love exploring this city, especially its artistic parts - galleries, museums, theater, etc. While my netflix queue is full of foreign and classic films, I'm by no means a film snob (ok maybe just slightly).
The past few years have been intense - I've gone from getting Oliver Stone his coffee, to directing my thesis film at NYU and accompanying it on the film festival circuit, to asst. editing and editing a very eclectic mix of projects. Whether the subject matter be the problems in the American education system, someone with a life threatening but hilarious sleepwalking disorder, or the Jewish community in Jamaica (the country), each project is inspiring in a different way.
I’m quite passionate about what I do in life, but also about my close friends and if I have a special woman in my life, about her as well.
