About Me

I grew up in Israel and moved to New York City when I was 18 years old. I moved here to study Acting but I found oyut ver quickly that where I feel most creative is behind the camera. I currently work as a freelance photographer/ videographer shooting mostly dancers, actors and artists.


The ego says: when I get what I desire I'll find peace.
The spirit says: when I find peace, I'll get what I desire.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love traveling and meeting new people. I currently live in the Upper West Side and can occasionally host.


I couchsurfed in Paris in the summer of 2010 and had the most beautiful experience I could ever imagine. I met a handful of great people on this site and I'm always looking to make new friends and meet interesting people.

Music, Movies, and Books

Right now I'm reading a lot from Pema Chodron.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Thailand is heaven on earth. I crossed it North to South and each place had so much to offer. Also, the deep blue waters of Ayia Nappa (Cyprus) bring back suntan memories.

Teach, Learn, Share
