Bio
I am the third-generation in a family of Hebrew editors, translators and writers, with particular expertise in my own right on the history of the Hebrew script. Half-Israeli, half-British by birth and brought up in New York, Israel, and the UK, I am bilingual in English and Hebrew and equally at home in British and American English.

As a former computer applications consultant and technical writer in the Israeli high-technology industry, Hebrew translation is but one aspect of my work which includes teaching the Hebrew script, Hebrew localisation, and developing solutions for Hebrew communication in various computerised applications. A polymath and confirmed science and political information junkie, I am au fait with major developments in Israeli politics, with science and with the Apple Macintosh operating system.

My most recent book is "Learn the Hebrew Script: Aleph Through the Looking Glass", published by Yale University Press.
