I was born in Sofia, Bulgaria in 1939. My family immigrated to Israel in 1949. I moved to the USA in 1967. I earned an associate degree in chemistry in Israel and a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design from Portland State University in 1973. For 20 years I was employed by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry where I was in charge of design and production of science exhibits. From 1987 until my retirement in 2002, I owned my own company, specializing in design and production of exhibits for science museums with clients all over the world. While I am interested in many things, my “first love” has been kinetic sculpture and my current interest is stereoscopic photography. I teach stereoscopic photography at the 3D Center of Art and Photography, the first and only public gallery/museum in the USA dedicated solely to 3D imagery located in Portland, Oregon.
