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
