OK, so I put a few quotes up from some fancy people I've gotten to know over the years. Can you blame me? At least I'm doing you the courtesy of not pretending someone else is writing my biography.

Here, written in first person, are the highlights you might care to know about me:

I was born in Israel, 1988. A graduate of the Berklee College of Music, I've recorded with John Mayer, Eddie Bayers, Tedd T (Switchfoot, Mutemath), was a Top 40 Contestant on Season 10 of American Idol, a Top 50 Contestant on The Voice of Israel, and I've been lucky enough to win a dozen music competitions around the country including the American Sound Songwriting Contest, California's West Coast Songwriting Competition, ranked Top 5 Songwriters in Songwriter Universe Magazine, #1 artist in 13 categories on broadjam.com, and OK - enough with the list.

Having been a songwriter since 9, I was forced to learn how to wear many hats. I do in fact write, produce, and play every instrument on most of my songs. I like being at the front lines of every step my songs take, from writing to arranging, tracking to mixing. It somehow allows me the merit of calling myself a "musician" rather than just a "singer/songwriter". I also do sound design and score for films.

Alongside my passion for a music career, I am a dedicated music teacher/therapist for teens with mental and social disabilities. For over 6 years, I've worked with people suffering from Autism, Downs Syndrome, Williams Syndrome, Aspergers, and more. Whether it's a bedside visit at a hospital, or a home session, the special needs community has been a giving tree for me, and I will forever be giving back to it.

If you've read this far, you might as well give some of my songs a listen. I spent far more time crafting those lyrics than writing this biography. Click the music tab and indulge.

I hope it makes you feel something.
