Hey, I'm Uzi Mordechai!

ABOUT MYSELF
I'm Canadian-Jewish (Sephardic) gay guy from Montreal living in London (Golders Green), UK. I been living in Europe since 1999 in cities such as London, Glasgow, Belfast, Madrid, Amsterdam, Antwerp and Stockholm. My roots are from ancient Spain (Sefarad) and the last 200 years my Sephardic ancestors have live in the Ottoman Empire (modern day Turkey & Greece), Netherlands (Amsterdam), Canada, USA and Israel.

My first language is Ladino (Judeo-Espanyol) the language spoken by the Sephardic Jews expelled from Sefarad (Spain) in 1492 and still spoken today by their descendants around the world like myself, it's the same Spanish spoken in XIV century Spain, the Spanish of Cervantes.

I'm well-traveled, cosmopolitan, multi-lingual and I was raised in four continents in cities such as Montreal, New York, Honolulu, Toronto, Tel Aviv, Johannesburg, Capetown, Harare, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Zurich, London, Antwerpen...etc.

I also spend a couple of years in the army where I was a Captain and a Paratrooper in the Israeli army for 3 years and I was also with the Canadian Peacekeepers stationed in Iraq-Kurdistan for about 2 years.

Languages I speak: Djudeo-Espanyol, English, French (Quebecois), Hebrew, Spanish, Portuguese, Afrikaans, Swedish, Norwegian, Dutch, Kurdish and Persian.

PERSONAL PHILOSOPHY
Live today you might be dead tomorrow and travel the world while you can, life is too short.
