I am an original thinker with broad interests and a great deal of experience in certain fields. I have learned in life how to talk to anybody. I believe that good writing is the evidence of thinking. Among my interests are art, film, media, culture, social sciences including economics and psychology, comparative religion and history. I am a professional artist and photographer with several museum shows and publc commissions. I have also worked in art publishing and printing. I write essays, poems, and songs. To me, criticism is an art; in fact oratory was once considered an art. I have published a book of essays, photography, and poems entitled "Songs from the Territories," composed during my reserve postings in the Israeli army. I have also written essays on art history and criticsm.
