I grew up in New York, and moved to Israel in 2001, after getting married to Naomi Libicki. We have a son, Uriel, who's a treasure and a delight, and who likes yelling a great deal. I've currently got a number of unpublished novels that I'm trying to sell, as well as an MA in Maritime Studies, with a concentration in Maritime Archaeology and History.

In the last few years, I've published some short fiction.
