I was born Friday September 10, 1982 at 4:20 (lol) in the afternoon in Mount Sinai Hospital of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I had been living in the same house in Thornhill (suburb of Toronto) my whole life. It's a nice little area, and it's considerably filled with Jews and all, but it's not really home. And so I moved home, to Jerusalem, on December 28, 2004.

I'm Jewish, something that I consider essential and central to my being. I'm relatively religious; I keep the Sabbath and I always eat Kosher. Oh, and certainly Zionist, in that I feel that Israel is my home. Feel free to call me an occupying-racist-hitlerian-*insert blanketed dismissal of facts of what's happened in the past 3000 years of history here* animal. Depending on the day, I'll either ban your ass or play with your sadly misinformed little head that has been criminally filled with nonstop propagandic lies.

All that unpleasantness aside...

I went to York University for Computer Science from 2002 to 2004. Not the most pleasant of experiences. I spent the summer of 2004 in Israel volunteering for Magen David Adom, the national ambulance service and Israel's version of the Red Cross. (Whose logo has internationally been replaced with a diamond, because the Star of David logo has been deemed not recognizable by the Red Cross and Red Crescent Society for any number of "technical" [read: political] reasons.)

Since I moved to Israel in December of 2004, I've roomed with joshbrown, have made a wonderful group of friends, worked at IDT and a steakhouse and have been unemployed for a while and have since worked at Holy Bagel in catering, and have found wuv, twue wuv in the form of a certain yaffa. yaffa and I got married on August 29, 2006. I did a year of Biology at Hebrew University, and now I'm going to be learning Nursing through Hebrew University at Hadassah Ein Karem Hospital.

I should prolly put something more lively here, but you can just read the journal to check my insanity instead. And seriously, I'm not really as confrontational and pig-headed as I've made myself sound, I'm just changing my userinfo because it kinda needs it. Mebbe I'll change it later.
