Welcome to my site!

Here’s a little info about me.

I’m a freelance military and strategic affairs analyst.

My areas of coverage are usually focused on Israel’s defense establishment, and the country’s strategic environment.

I’ve also been known to conduct research for defense think tanks, including the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies.

My work includes being the Israel correspondent for Jane’s Defense Weekly.

I’m a regular guest on international TV and radio outlets 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.
