I was born in St. Petersburg and moved to Ashkelon, Israel when I was 7. I attended college in Haifa, Israel, and now I'm a PhD student at Stanford, studying electrical engineering.

I write and perform music in my free time. I also love to dance salsa, hike, and hang out with my wife, Katharina. And I'm a three-time Burner and can't wait to be back on the Playa again.
