Personal life
I was born on September 7, 1990 in Afula, northern Israel. I grew up and was educated in the "Beit Hashmonai" settlement near Jerusalem until the end of my high school years. At the age of 18, I joined the IDF and served in the Artillery Corps for three years until the age of 21. During my military service, I improved my graphic skills through a course in graphic design and editing that was funded by the army, and during the last six months of my service I served as the graphic designer of the unit. After my military service, I moved to the southernmost city of Israel - Eilat, where I worked as a bartender for 8 months in one of the city's most luxurious hotels (there I met my future wife). After this period, I moved with my wife to the center of Israel (Rishon Letzion) where I began my studies as a graphic designer in Tel Aviv. In 2017 I got married. And in September 2017 we moved together to live in Belgium, in  Hasselt, Limburg.
Hobbies & Passion
My main hobbies are art, music, traveling and hiking. For me, the combination of music and nature creates inspiration for the world of design and beauty. This endless freedom of nature and the enjoyment of high-quality music create an open world for creativity and thoughts
