Hi all,

As some of you may know, I’ve recently joined the SCN team. The Blog it Forward initiative is a great way for us to get to know each other better and I am delighted to introduce myself properly to this great community. Thank you Gali for blogging it forward to me!

A little bit about me…

I was born in Ramat Hasharon, Israel, and spent most of my life there. I also had the opportunity to live abroad, when my dad was relocated to New York. So together with him, my mother and brother, we moved to the big apple when I was four years old. 3 years later we came back to Israel with a new tiny addition – my baby brother 🙂 .

I guess those 3 years weren’t enough for me, and my insatiable curiosity to explore new worlds has driven me to visit over 30 countries and 16%(!) percent of the world by the age of 29. Some of my favorite places were Ecuador, India and Argentina, each one of them with its unique landscape, sounds, tastes and smells.

Here’s a glimpse –

Today I live in Tel Aviv and spend most of my nights playing and listening to great music, and spend my weekends on the beach with my beautiful Labrador Nuka!

Career and Studies

I have a B.A in communication and political studies, and today I am studying for my MBA, specializing in Marketing.

I started my career as a journalist, and then worked in PR, dealing with interesting clients such as Mercedes, Wrigley, Tempo and more. In my previous position I worked as a Marketing manager in a start-up that develops connected-toys, which was an extraordinary experience. 

My exciting journey here at SAP started a few months ago and so far, this new road I’ve chosen – moving from a small start-up to a big, inspiring company like SAP – has been an adventure.

A fact about SAP Labs Israel the community might not be familiar with

Our building is located in Ra’anana and has the greatest balcony on the roof (that’s on the 12th floor). It has a ping-pong table, sofas and orange trees, and you can see the Mediterranean Sea and the beautiful surroundings of the Sharon area.

What is your favorite SAP event and why

Well, I haven’t been here enough to determine that, but ask me again after d-code and I have a feeling I will have the answer to that J

Blogging it forward

I have chosen the following 4 people to ‘blog it forward’ to:

* Eran Gans

* Vitaly Vainer

I would ask that they please answer one or more of the following questions:

  • What is the craziest thing you have ever done
  • One place in the world you have to see someday

Please be sure to follow the Blog It Forward Chain to see where it will lead.

    Hey Adi,

    what fantastic pictures you’ve posted! 😎

    Boahhhh!

    That’s great how you like our planet – may I ask you if you’ve already found that little island in the Atlantic ocean, a small island, but without any doubt a special place in this planet – and the place where I was born: La Palma, Canary Islands, Spain

    See you there;-)

      Hi Carlos,

      I’ve been to Spain (you have the most amazing language!) but not yet to Canary Islands. Defiantly putting it on my list 🙂

    Hi Adi,

    Very nice blog with good pictures. Good to know you enjoyed your stay in India and liked it. Israel has always been a good allie of India.

    Quite adventurous journey, wtg 🙂

    Welcome to #BIF family.

    Good to know that you visited India too, its my country 🙂 . The picture looks like you were in northern part of India. You should visit southern part of India too if haven’t, especially the state Kerala, its one of the most beautiful states- its known as God own country, and I am from Kerala 😉 .

    Good to know about you.

    I’ve spent a month and a half in India and went to the northern area – Leh, Manali, Dharamsala, Parvati valley. I took a break from the heat in Israel and visited the cold places 🙂 .

    I had such a great time although I couldn’t handle the spicy food 😛 .

    India is so big, I think I will need two years to see it all! For sure will go back there and visit your beautiful states as well!

    Hi Adi!

    Great blog! By the way, did you get the 16% from the TripAdvisor app on Facebook?

    Because I’ve also been to 16% of the world 🙂 …by the age of 28, so I’m a bit ahead 😛

    Nice building you got there.

    I just posted my Blog It Forward – Pedro Freitas…it has facts on Brazil and you can see the SAP Labs Latin America building here too, as I also work at SAP.

      Hi Pedro,

      I got it from another Facebook app that’s called “where I’ve been” and I actually got it last year (when I was 28) so we got a tie 🙂 .

      Brazil was one of my favorite places in Latin America and I fantasize about Acai whenever I go to the beach!

      I have only one issue with your blog – you have one pin missing in your map there – Israel!

    Hey Adi,

    We’ll see in 5 years who’s ahead, deal? I’m just kidding, but whenever I get the chance, I like to go somewhere new.

    Maybe when all of these conflicts cool down I’ll visit Israel, but I have a friend who lived in Tel Aviv for some time and really enjoyed it 🙂
