I am a certified tour guide who specializes in the Negev desert. Living for many years in New Zealand and Australia makes me an excellent English speaker. I am also a certified mountain bike guide and can show visitors some of the less known trails in the Negev. In addition, I enjoy sharing my knowledge of these unique places and people with our visitors.
I was born in Israel to parents who grew up in New Zealand. My formative years were spent in Australia and I returned to Israel at the age of 19.
Until 2004 I lived in the centre of Israel, working in the education field with both children and adults. My experience included working with Ethiopian immigrants and youth at risk.
I then moved to Ben Gurion College near Kibbutz Sde Boker in search of clean air, a community life for my children and myself. Also that special feeling that the sky is the only border.
I arrived at a place where at night the sky sparkles and the horizon vanishes into the distance.
History has always interested me and so I studied the history of the Negev and its people.
Today I am an authorized guide, an off-road cyclist, and coordinator of local events. In addition I also offer accommodation and can provide free advice and maps of the area for my guests.
I like spending time with people and sharing desert experiences with them. My success is knowing that my visitors are enjoying themselves.
