About Me


I'm a twenty-one year old university student, who has been spending the past few years bumming around Manhattan, with occasional jaunts to Europe. This summer finds me in Tel Aviv, and I would love to do some activities and see things off of the beaten path. My hobbies include painting, swing dancing, reading, cooking, and accordion playing and my interests include old films, history, classical music, Russian and American literature, and the moon.


Our knowledge has made us cynical, our cleverness hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery we need humanity. More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness.
