Writer-director based in Tel Aviv. 

I began my film quest in Minshar School Of Arts, Tel Aviv, while studying Mathematics in TA university. 

In 2013 I’ve completed my film studies in London, specialising in Cinematography.

After touring around the world with my graduation film, I’ve returned to Israel and received a development fund for the writing my 1st full-length feature project. Since my return, I’ve been busy developing projects both for the big and the small screen, and got selected for the 2015 Berlinale Talent program and the 2016 Locarno Film Academy.
