I started my professional career at the age of 18 while serving in the Israeli military. For three years, worked extensively within interdisciplinary teams and taught several courses focusing on software development and extra curricular subjects. Following my service I received a Computer Science degree at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzeliya, Israel and graduated with honors along with being on the dean's list of academic excellence.

In 2011, I co-founded the Israeli Android Association, an NPO that focuses on teaching latest technologies in Android through organizing events and Hackathons. Not long after, I co-founded a Google Developers Group (GDG) in Herzeliya and joined the GDG Israeli Leads program, which main goal is to create a centralized community of young developers and contribute to the high-tech industry in Israel.

I have designed and written web, desktop, mobile and embedded software applications and currently pursuing a Master's degree in Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab in Andrew Lippman's group Viral Communications.

On my spare time I volunteer at Outbox, an NPO that cultivates a culture of social activism and community involvement amongst the young design community in Israel, while developing the entrepreneurial skills and maximizing the potential of aspiring artists.
