I’m a music teacher, composer, songwriter and record producer.

As a singer-songwriter, I have worked with top producers and have led two alternative rock/pop bands. Together with my bands, I have recorded three studio albums and played hundreds of shows, including music festivals, national TV and radio. My current solo project debuted at Melbourne Recital Centre in 2021, and I have recently released my fourth studio recording.

I also compose music for film, advertising, dance and theatre. My portfolio includes a nomination in the Best Music for Short Film category for Scorpion Ascent at the 2023 APRA Screen Music Awards along with award-winning projects for ABC, Respect Victoria, Jalna, iSelect, Hapoel Jerusalem B.C, Sinfonietta Beer-Sheva Orchestra, Jerusalem Street Orchestra, more. I am currently Music Director and Resident Composer at Production Alley Studios.

I have been teaching music for 14 years — leading a private studio in St Kilda East, where I teach the guitar, songwriting, music production and composition.
I hold a bachelor’s degree in Composition from The Jerusalem Academy of Music & Dance, and a current Working With Children Check.
