I’m a 1969 model Israeli, and that means a lot. Born in Tel-Aviv and currently living in Tel-Mond with Einat, a Yoga instructor and Speech Therapist, and our children Zohar, Adam, Ella and Tommy (the family Shih-Tzu).
With a Bachelors’ degree in Archeology from the Ben-Gurion University in the Negev, my professional post-IDF life began as a field archeologist with numerous excavations all over Israel.
Funny enough, the universe threw me many curve balls and somehow, I ended up here. A veteran High-Tech Entrepreneur with a focus on Cyber Security. I co-founded several companies, sold a couple of them, and am extremely active in my field.
I’m very passionate with everything I choose to focus on, and I don’t stop. Currently, my focus is saving children’s lives. I do that by spearheading L1ght’s technology (as Co-Founder and CTO). But my path is not yet finished, and opportunities will never stop.

From a statistical standpoint, my success rate stands at 41.6%. I have founded 6 startups and sold 2.5 of them.
With no official background in either technology nor business, I was forced to learn fast. Initially how to be a good techie and eventually how to manage and create businesses. I have been challenged by my technological peers on security (nowadays we call it “cyber”), infrastructure, DB’s, coding, networks and more, as well as by my investors on all things budget, ESOP, valuations and the like.
I have managed sales funnels, marketing team, PR interactions and distributors. All this while traveling the globe more than 250 days a year over a span over several years.
Mostly, I had the pleasure of managing talented people. Much more talented and educated than me in their relevant fields. I was responsible for their well being and their livelihood, and at most times, I succeeded.
Entrepreneurs are required to make hundreds of decisions a day as well as face business “do or die” dilemmas. Each decision, each dilemma, has its own risks and awards, each carrying some weight, some more than others.
A smart entrepreneur will gather a clan. A fellowship of people, that will be there for him in these moments so he can learn and rely on their wisdom and objectivity.
