I was born in Jerusalem to a family active in hiking and biking. My mother, moved to Israel during the 70s, joining her parents who had made ‘aliya’ earlier from the U.S and to pursue her Ph.D. studies in Microbiology. She married Haim and they discovered a mutual passion for cycling–this passion was passed on to the children.
I grew up in Jerusalem mainly with 2-3-year periods in New Zealand and the Negev, where I studied in the High School for Environmental Studies in Sde Boker. After completing my military service, in the infantry, I spent some time working as a logistics coordinator in the Sde Boker Field School. From the Negev, I moved to Portland, Oregon and worked as an outdoor education trainer, working with troubled youth. After returning to Israel, I completed the Israel government Tour Guide course and obtained my license. I am a 3rd generation tour guide (my grandfather was one of the first Israeli tour guides),
