Career Objective:
My desire is to receive a position that puts me in a challenging,
creative and competitive work environment that will allow me to
implement all my skills, education, competencies, and capabilities
to their fullest potential.

Professional Qualifications:
Discipline and creative crisis management are two concepts that
exemplify my background. Both of them are connected to my
experience in the Israeli Air Force and in Shenkar College of
Engineering and Design. These values became deeply engrained in
my professional evolution and character development. These
qualities put me in the remarkable position of viewing crisis as an
opportunity. They have offered me a wide variety of experiences
and have facilitated my unconventional thought process and
approach to problem solving.

Personal Qualifications:

Mexico, Spain, and Israel. This is on account of my parents being
involved in the Jewish Agency (a diplomatic organization of the state
of Israel). The experiences I acquired by living in different
environments in the world have molded my adaptable nature as
well as exposed me to many cultures and many avenues of thought.
This, along with my professional experience, reinforces an openness
and flexibility in my approach to situations which I consider
