I'm originally from Israel, and came to study film at NYU after finishing my army service in Israel (believe it or not, it was through my service in the army that I got into filmmaking). I graduated a couple years ago and have been working in the film industry now.
I feel very lucky to say that I can do work that I love and not be a starving artist. I've been in NYC for about 6 years and I haven't gotten enough of this city.
I definitely consider myself a creative person with a deep appreciation for the arts. I love exploring NYC - especially its artistic parts - galleries, museums, theater, etc. While I love classic and foreign films, I'm by no means a film snob.
The past couple years have been intense - I've gone from getting Oliver Stone his coffee, to directing my thesis film at NYU and accompanying it on the film festival circuit, to asst. editing and editing a very eclectic mix of projects. Whether the subject matter be the problems in the American education system, someone with a life threatening but hilarious sleepwalking disorder, or the Jewish community in Jamaica (the country), each project is inspiring in a different way.
