On a more personal note 

I live in Israel with my partner and our three teenage children. I love walking in the fields near our house, and in other worlds as well. For the last 15 years I’ve been exploring the world of childbirth. The hundreds of births which I’ve attended as a birth doula, and my own three personal childbirths, have changed my life. It has filled me with curiosity and interest in the essence of the human process of change.

I realize more and more now that Change happens through Interaction. It leads me to study the interactions with the people around me, and interactions between different worlds (e.g. Birth & Science). I’m fascinated by how out of these unexpected connections- something new is born.

I also love to simply be.
