Welcome to my site!
Here’s a little info about me.
I’m a military and strategic affairs analyst and correspondent.
My areas of coverage are usually focused on Israel’s defense establishment, and the country’s strategic environment.
I’m an in-house analyst at the Miryam Institute, and research associate at the Alma Center, the Trends Research and Analysis, and at the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies. My work appears at Jane’s Defence Weekly, JNSm the National Interest, and the Circuit.

I’m a regular guest commentator on international TV and radio outlets, including Sky News, BBC World Service, and I24, to provide commentary on defense issues.
Until 2016, I was the Jerusalem Post’s military correspondent.
One of my passions is to give talks, and share what I have learned with an audience.
My educational background:
- 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.
