My self-summary
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.

I originally came to New York 10 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. I've gone from getting Oliver Stone his coffee to asst. editing and editing a very eclectic mix of projects. Whether the subject be the problems in the American education system, marine conservation, 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.

*Update* I have a pretty awesome girlfriend and we're in a happy and stable open relationship. We enjoy going on dates with other people both together and separately.
What I’m doing with my life
Here's the condensed version -
(editing to pay the bills, while working on personal projects on the side)
*Update* Currently taking time off from editing work to direct a documentary project which encompasses several subjects that interest me - Art, WWII history and how our memories/stories define our identity.
I’m really good at
I'm a good listener with good attention to detail - which often translates to being able to pick the perfect gift for someone.
Been told I give very good massages.
I'm getting better at NYTimes crosswords.
I also have a knack for recognizing a song just from the first few notes/beats.
The first things people usually notice about me
"How come you don't have much of an accent?"
Or my blue eyes, which some find surprising for someone from the middle east.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Portnoy's Complaint, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, The Book of Laughter and Forgetting, as well as other works by Milan Kundera, Sex at Dawn, books by Charles Bukowski, short stories by my favorite Israeli author Etgar Keret (bonus points to people who know his work).

Movies: While my netflix queue is full of foreign and classic films, I'm by no means a film snob (ok maybe just slightly). A selection of favorites - Annie Hall, Beginners, Midnight Cowboy, In Bruges, The Princess Bride, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Jellyfish, Reprise, The Intouchables, Inglorious Basterds, The Gatekeepers, Searching for Sugarman.

TV: The Daily Show, Colbert Report, Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire, House of Cards and I'm secure enough in my masculinity to admit to being hooked on Downton Abbey.
Also a bit of a news junkie (MSNBC) - Rachel Maddow is pretty awesome.

Music: Pretty much anything except country. You should check out Asaf Avidan (very unique voice).

Food: Sushi, tapas, mediterranean food, seafood in general.
Six things I could never do without
Art, both creating and enjoying (that includes film, music, fine art, etc.) I consider that my version of spirituality. BAM and MOMA are my places of worship.
My family back home (parents + dog). As an only child I have a pretty good relationship with my parents.
My circle of friends (both here and in Israel).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Current and future projects.
Figuring out what type of relationship model suits me best. I've had great monogamous romantic connections as well as non-monogamous ones.
On a typical Friday night I am
Depending on the week. If it's been a long week of work, I'm probably on my roof having a glass of wine or whiskey. Otherwise, maybe checking out a new movie, wandering around a museum, or out to dinner with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
ummm... I don't actually know how to ride a bike. I know, I know, how can I live in Brooklyn and not know how to ride a bike. *UPDATE* - I'm working on this. Taken a couple lessons and I'm starting to get the hang of it.

I'm not as "vanilla"/innocent as you might think.
You should message me if
- You appreciate a guy who has "most of his shit together".
- You're a member of the single contingent in Prospect Heights/Fort Greene/Park Slope - so many young hip families around here. My new building even has a small playground on the roof.
- You appreciate creativity - whether it's on the silver screen, the kitchen, etc.
- If you're culturally Jewish but fairly secular like me, that's a plus.
- You want to check something out at BAM.
The two of us
