I was born and raised in Israel. At the age of fourteen, out of love for nature and the land of Israel, I went to study in an environmental high school in the Negev.
I served in the military as a Merkava tank commander and in a weapon development experimental unit. After I finished my military service, I met a beautiful American new immigrant and we fell in love, got married in Israel, and had our first and our second sons there.
We moved together to live in the United States for a few years so our kids would have the American experience. We lived in Baltimore, where I fell in love with teaching and education, got my Master's degree in education, and was one of the founding faculty in a new Jewish high school. I taught Hebrew in many Jewish day-schools.
After seven years in the United States, we came back with three sons and bought our house in a small village in the center of Israel, between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, where I have planted a vine and a fig tree, as the verse says, "...and a man shall dwell under his vine and his fig." In 2006 I decided to go back to my original passion for teaching and I became an educator on the road. I took the tour guide course, and I've been sharing my love and my greatest passion of showing my beautiful homeland to the rest of the world.
