I am 20 years old and currently live in Israel, but more currently traveling extensively around the world. I grew up on Long Island, New York and for as long as I can remember art, travel and a thirst for unique experiences have been a part of my life. At the age of 18 I decided to not yet pursue a higher education but instead to move half way across the world to Israel alone and volunteer for the Israeli Defense Forces, confident in my capability to contribute to the country, artistically or otherwise. Although my service was not centered around photography I took care to incorporate it into my spare time, be that time spent on base or in my Kibbutz (community). I hope to turn this passion for photography, travel and helping others into a career as a photojournalist.
