My self-summary
I was born in Israel and moved to LA when I was 14. I decided to move up to the bay area for school (Academy of Art) to study animation and visual effects. I recently moved to the OC for a dream job in animation.
What I’m doing with my life
I animate for a living. I'm loving every second of it, since it's what I want to do. The idea that a film, or any piece of art, can attract such a variety of individuals into a collective really appeals to me. So being able to be part of that process is definitely rewarding.

Other than that, I mostly try to stay active, read, try anything new (Sounds cheesy... yes. That's because I love cheese).

I'd say I'm pretty curious about the world around me. Knowing and understanding how things work is something that I find to be important to me.

I have two super awesome dogs. A Boxer and a Cavalier King Charles mix. They keep me busy most of the time.

I try to be more like this kid
