Welcome to my site!
Here’s a little info about me.
I’m a military and strategic affairs analyst.
My areas of coverage are usually focused on Israel’s defense establishment, and the country’s strategic environment.
I’m an Associate Researcher at the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies, and the Israel correspondent for Jane’s Defense Weekly and the Jewish News Service (JNS.org).
I’m a regular guest on international TV and radio outlets (Sky News, BBC, Israel’s Channel 1 English news program) to provide commentary on defense issues.
One of my passions is to give talks, and share what I have learned with an audience.
Up until 2016, I was the Jerusalem Post’s defense correspondent.
Before I got into the world of defense and media, my path in academia led me this far:
- MA in The History of International Relations from the
London School of Economics and Political Science
- BA in Politics and Modern History from the University of Manchester
In 2011, I published my first book, Virtual Caliphate.
