I was born and raised in California and visited Israel a lot with my family and on my own and felt that there was something special about this small land with a very rich history. I decided to move to Israel after my studies and haven't looked back. I have since traveled to more than 20 countries, as still, I find that Israel is my home and always will be.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"As Israel is a small country we specialize in everything from the North to the South.
From highlights like Jerusalem, Tel-Aviv, The Dead Sea, Golan Heights, and Haifa, to the more off the beaten path like lunch with a Druze family in their village or an off-road jeep tour. We fully customize the experience for our guests by learning about their background and interests. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"While traveling through, Europe, Asia and the Islands I fell in love with travel and felt that I had also to learn the "other" side, meaning more the logistical part and operations. I joined Tlalim Online and have learned how to operate large and small groups, as well as individual travelers. Every tour is different, with different needs and expectations and the goal now is to create the full experience for everyone who travels with us in Israel. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"My first trip to Israel was the most unforgettable and has since become a benchmark in my life. I went on a 10-day organized tour for young adults and we toured every inch of the holy land. From surfing the Mediterranean waves in Tel-Aviv to meandering the cobblestone streets of the Old City of Jerusalem to floating in the Dead Sea. My passion for travel was ignited in Israel and I am so thankful for the experience."
