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.
דור שלישי למשפחת מתרגמים, עורכים וסופרים ישראלית, וסמכות מוכרת לנושא הכתב העברי לדורותיו. בן לאם ישראלית ואב אנגלי, גדלתי בניו–יורק, בישראל, ובאנגליה, אני דו–לשוני באנגלית ובעברית, וכן בקיא בהבדלים שבין אנגלית בריטית לאמריקאית.

כיועץ תוכנה וכאחראי לשעבר לתיעוד טכני בתעשיית ההיי–טק הישראלית, תרגום הוא רק היבט אחד של עבודתי, הכוללת הוראת הכתב העברי בחו’ל, ’גיור' ממשקים, ופיתוח פתרונות לתקשורת בעברית ביישומים ממוחשבים שונים. כ’פריק' של מידע בתחומי המדע ואקטואליה, אני דואג להתעדכן בתחומים אלה, וכן בתחום מערכת ההפעלה של המקינטוש.

בהוצאת אוניברסיטת ייל ’Learn the Hebrew Script: Aleph Through the Looking Glass', ספרי האחרון הוא
