About

I'm a full stack developer experienced in JavaScript and web development, based in Haifa, Israel. I like a good challenge, and enjoy applying logic to tackle complex problems and write efficient code. On the front end, I incorporate usability principles and strive to provide a clear, aesthetic, and intuitive interface for users.

I also have a background in linguistics, with a BA in the field and a particular interest in syntax and historical linguistics. I've studied many languages over the years, from Spanish, French, and Italian to Hebrew, Chinese, Breton, and Persian.

Prior to my entrance into coding, I completed a course in Permaculture and worked for several years in organic farming.

Other interests? I enjoy researching genealogy, inventing languages, making liqueurs, and playing piano/guitar/ukulele.

You can view my CV in an online pretty version or as a one-page PDF.
