I love programming and software development, and enjoy the Linux stack - from Python and Java to rsync and awk.

My current position is CTO at Vioozer. We are developing an interesting location-based real-time search engine based on users answering from their mobile devices.

I live at Kibbutz Zikim, Israeland have B.Sc in Computer Science and humanities from the Hebrew university, Jerusalem.
