I have a bachelor’s degree of architecture and town planning from the Technion – Israel Institute of technology in Israel (2007) and I’m a licensed architect since 2014. In addition to the knowledge I've obtained from my education, I have gained extensive experience in designing public buildings and healthcare facilities by practicing it in architectural firms and by participating in many invited and open architectural competitions. Finally, I am also a licensed accessibility consultant, an issue important in any building especially hospitals.

During the past ten years I successfully worked on a vast range of projects from small scale housing through public buildings to large scale hospital buildings. I learned a lot during those years, including: The design process, from initial planning stages to construction; Independent and team designer work processes; coordinating and collaborating as a designer with project consultants; Experience with different design styles, materials and building types; and worked in several firms which provided me different architectural design perspective on different methods of working and thinking. Finally, I participated in many architectural competitions as an individual or as part of a team. In one of these competitions my proposal won and in another my proposal made it to the shortlist of winning projects.
