About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel in south america

ABOUT ME

I'm a traveler, writer and a photographer. I live and enjoy Tel Aviv. I love Tel-Aviv so much I started a photography blog documenting it's buildings. I get bored very easily and can't stay at one place and do one thing for a long time, that's why traveling is the most natural thing for me. My work is kind of the same as traveling; I create different projects and I love them all.

I work as a Journalit and Writer. I have a personal column at a Tel Aviv newspaper and write travel features when abroad. I also own an Indie culture Organization:
