About Me


Exploring what it means to be alive, pushing beyond my comfort zone, growth


A 30 year-old PhD candidate at the University of Chicago.

I'm a bit on the eccentric side. You can find me upside down on my yoga mat or holding a half full glass of Bloody Mary (not half empty). I often find myself dancing all night in a dive bar...or in the library. My goal here on this planet is to push beyond my comfort zone and explore what it means to be alive.

I'm Israeli and Russian. I have an open mind and a very dark sense of humor. I'm a recovering cynic, who is finally learning joy...and often does it on a playground.

I'm Feminist, sex positive and queer friendly.
