About Me


To still be alive when peace finally gets here. Alternatively, to be dead before mankind destroys itself...


Working in a start-up in the field of computer vision.
I'm one of those "cool nerds" as I like to call it: on the one hand, I'm pretty much a computer geek. On the other hand, I enjoy meeting and talking with new people, dancing and partying once in a while, and having fun with other people.


"Never be desperate"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Organized quite a few weekly meetings in Jerusalem.

Organized the Jerusalem Invasions in 2011 and 2012, which were a great success... Check out some photos here.


Surfed some couches during my trips in Australia, New-Zealand, London, Italy and Istanbul. Met lots of nice people. Hosted quite a lot of surfers in around Israel.
