An Israeli-American interdisciplinary artist and writer, I hold bachelor and master’s degrees in fine art, and studied creative writing at Emerson College, where I received the 2015 Nonfiction Award (Judge: Robert Atwan, editor of Best American Essays).

My writing has been shortlisted in the 2017 OWT Short Fiction Competition, and published in East Coast Ink, The Masters Review, Consequences Magazine, Canyon Voices, Dunes Review, and forthcoming in Waves, an anthology by A Room of Her Own Foundation.

Currently a PhD student in Creative Writing at University of Exeter, my research explores subversive narratives in literature and film, while my creative writing focuses on Israel’s social, political, and cultural multifaceted challenges.
