About Me


Helplessly hoping.


I grew up in a Kibbutz in Israel and moved to Jerusalem when I was 19.

I lived in the Hague, Netherlands, from 2012 to 2015.

I'm usually quiet and shy. (But) It doesn't mean that I don't have stuff to talk about...

"I am nothing
I shall never be anything
I cannot wish to be anything.
Aside from that, I have within me all the dreams of the world."


"In a society that has abolished all adventure, the only adventure left is to abolish that society."
