About Me


♦ Enjoy life to the fullest
♦ Eat the best food every city has to offer
♦ Create experiences and make memories


I'm a happy person from Tel Aviv. I'm a product manager in high-tech and spend hours around computers all day, but I love meeting new people, exploring new places and new cultures.

I'm also a real foody! I love trying new stuff and showing you to the best places in town.


Don't judge :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I enjoy meeting locals when I'm traveling, and I'm happy to meet travelers to Tel Aviv and Israel, show you around or meet for drinks. I can host sometimes if it works out.


I met a few locals in my last trip to Amsterdam through couchsurfing, which was great!
I met many locals in San Francisco who showed me around and took me to awesome restaurants - it was so much fun.
In Barcelona I organized a big CS event (about 40 people arrived), and met many fellow travelers and some locals. I've made some really good friends there!
Whenever I travel I try to meet with locals and explore with fellow travelers.
I love meeting up with tourists coming to visit Tel Aviv or locals living in cities I travel to.

I've made so many great new friends through Couchsurfing :)
