I was born and grew up in Sutton in South London, UK. In high school, I decided against following an artistic career and went on instead to study and qualify in civil engineering at Leeds University. An ardent Zionist and Bnei Akiva activist, I made Aliya (emigrated) to Israel in 1990 where I married and settled in Beit Shemesh near Jerusalem.
Today I live there with my wife and five children, working, painting, playing and trying to find my way between Jewish tradition and thought and modern and post-modern thought and values.
I returned to art in 2003 and started taking evening classes in drawing and painting. I specialize in painting Israeli scenes and landscapes and works in a style that blends between realism and impressionism. I paint in my little spare time left between family and work as a software developer and architect.
