I have always wanted a career that combined my love of working with my hands, science and traveling. As I went through school, I found a lot of what I did not want to do,but when I took my first archaeology course,
I was hooked! Ever since then I have been able to see so many amazing things on top of learning about something I’m really passionate about. It’s like one big puzzle.

The discipline of archaeology has been my passion since I was a kid. What makes us human? How do we become in thronging process of life? I find archaeology my tool to answer these questions. It combines the humanity and the sciences in a way that my mind cant resist. I have been travelling around the world to achieve the feeling that the archaeological field work transmits.

I liked history in school and later, in University. I watched a lot of historical films about excavation in Egypt, Greece, and Syria. Also I like Indiana Jones. To take part in an excavation was a dream of mine from childhood.

Traveling to the basics of human psyche, self knowledge is the most (best) incentive to stay awake I know of. So I think archaeology necessary for humanity and try to use every opportunity to immerse myself in this process.
I am a lover of Israel and the God of Israel, much like the Biblical Ruth.
However, she was gleaning in the harvest fields and I am digging in the dirt and rocks.
In trying to describe archeology, it is like putting together an ancient puzzle.
BUT you don’t have a picture to go by, and you also have to dig to find the puzzle pieces.
It is a wonderful adventure, well worth all the physical and mental challenges that you face.
