I was born in Portland Oregon, and raised in Santa Cruz California. I come from a musical household and I first fell in love with music as a child singing songs in Hebrew with my family. I studied piano and saxophone in elementary school and then switched to guitar in middle school when I got my hands on my dad's old guitar. That's when I started writing, singing, and recording my own songs.
Growing up I spent summers with family in Israel where I was exposed to many different types of music. After graduating from high school, I took a year to travel throughout Latin America to study Spanish and music. All of this exposure to world music inspired me to form the band
Universal Language while studying music at Cabrillo College. I released my first full-length studio album "Revolución" as part of my capstone project as a Language Studies major at UCSC. The album features my original songs in English, Spanish, and Hebrew.
In 2016 I released my 2nd album of originals"Lost & Found". This album is still in rotation on several prominent west coast radio stations including KPIG, and it's release secured me a performance at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in 2019.
When COVID arrived in 2020, I took advantage of the pause in live music by going back to school and receiving my teaching credential. I am currently working as an elementary school music teacher in Santa Cruz.
