I joined the make up industry after a promising career in security.
At the age of 26 I began my BA studies in Make-up for the Performing Arts, at London College Of Fashion, and during my studies I was already practicing theatrical make-up at several theaters in London.
After graduating I became a make-up artist in different theaters in the city, and at the same time worked at The English National Opera. With the recommendation of my college tutors I got to take part in some feature films on the special effects team, as well as working for a while as a make-up technician at my college.
In 2006 I returned to Israel with my family, and was accepted as a senior lecturer at a make-up college. I also freelance in television programs, provide special effects for films and theaters, as well as face and body paintings for festivals, fairs, birthdays and summer camps.
