I was born and raised in Paris. After completing high school studies and one year of compulsory service in the military (navy) I moved to Israel out of love for the country. I lived in Haifa, took training in Hebrew and geography at Haifa University.
I worked in the customs clearance and insurance and integrated in the reserve army duty in 1981 in an infantry fighting regiment. In 1987 I completed the tour guide course at the Tel Aviv School of the ministry of tourism.
I married the same year and we have two boys. I completed a BA in archaeology and French at the Tel Aviv University. I have been involved in the tourism industry for over thirty years and I have been guiding a wide range of individuals, groups of all faiths and extremely different backgrounds.
