Summary Hi, I'm a certified tour guide by the Ministry of Tourism in Israel. I'v been leading groups of various kinds including: National Geographic expeditions, Diplomatic and VIP delegations, Jewish federation missions, Christian pilgrims, Birthright groups, families and others, with the aim to let you experience Israel in the best way possible.

With my expertise, knowledge and experience, I can assist in planning your tour in Israel with recommendations on dining, accommodations and providing my guiding services. I am also a licensed Touring-Vehicle driver, and can provide a private driven tour customized to your preferences. If desired I'll be happy to organize various amazing trips, experiences and different cultural activities, including jeep tours, hiking, wine tasting, camel rides and lots more.

I was Born in the US and moved to Israel (in Hebrew - made Aliyah) at the age of 4. We joined Kibbutz Givat Haim, an egalitarian community where I was brought up in a children house. As a kid I used to  work in the children's' farm preparing for adulthood agriculture work where I developed my appreciation to nature and outdoor activities. As recreation, the kibbutz was a heaven and allowed me to experience different sports, such as windsurfing, kayaking, swimming, skiing and playing diverse team games including soccer, basketball and especially water-polo, where I developed a talent to participate in the National Youth Team.

Post high school, I joined the IDF and served in an elite infantry unit. When I completed my duty, I decided to explore my love to art and studied Theater in the Tel Aviv University along with obtaining a teaching diploma from the Kibbutzim College.

After getting married, I traveled the world, joining my wife, an Israeli Diplomat on her assignments around the world. As expats, we acquired a multi-cultural experience and were lucky to head out to adventures, find new frontiers and acquired friends in different countries. 

Along with touring I enjoyed being a theater teacher, a director, an actor and as a gourmet I even took professional cooking classes at the Belgium culinary institute CERIA.
