My parents say I'm the one good thing to come out of global terrorism. (Don't worry, it's a positive story I can elaborate on sometime)
Anyway, now that I've got your attention.
The past few years have been pretty intense - I've gone from getting Oliver Stone his coffee, to directing my thesis film and accompanying it on the film festival circuit, to asst. editing and editing a very eclectic mix of projects. Whether the subject 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 originally came to New York 7+ years ago to study film at NYU after finishing my mandatory army service in Israel (it was actually through my military service 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.
