Artist Statement

I am a writer, dancer, and filmmaker, originally from Israel but currently living in Los Angeles. As an artist, I am inspired by subtlety, sincerity, sound, and movement - the physical choreography that accompanies our lives. I strive to observe the world in a passionate but unjudgmental way. I am a collaborator, drawn to other artists who wish to engage in discourse and research, and who are open to being bold and taking risks. My goal is to continue observing life through dance, text, and imagery.
