About Me

ABOUT ME

I live in a nice small apartment in the center of Tel Aviv. I travel sometimes and enjoy it very much. When I am home, I like to stay there reading or listening to jazz, Bowie, Dylan, Toxedomoon or some Drum&Base. Besides - biking, friends, parties, cinemateque, tennis, my white cat ... :)

PHILOSOPHY

I suppose life has no specific meaning at all besides to live it. I want to be happy and to share it with others.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I went to meet my Ukranian friends who visited Egypt(Sinai) during the escalation of Intifada, when Israelis were afraid to cross the border. I was the only Israeli on my way inside, it was strange. After all I met a lot of great people and it was one of the best New Year Eves celebrations untill this days.
