About me

From 2000 through 2009, I was a news editor and features writer for The Jerusalem Post.

My articles explored issues of Israeli security and strategy, touching on Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and the Iranian nuclear threat; the Israeli mafia and other cultural exposes; the growth of Israel’s economy; Israeli Arabs and the state; anti-Semitism and interfaith relations; environmental policy and research vis-à-vis water, alternative energy and greenhouse gas emissions; editorials on current events, and more.

I was born in central Texas, grew up in south Florida, and lived in Chicago for five years before moving to Israel in 1998. I underwent basic training in the Israel Defense Forces in 1999, serving in the Nuclear, Biological and Chemical defense unit. Before joining The Jerusalem Post, I worked as a translator at Yad Vashem (The Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Authority).

Now a freelance writer, I live in Jerusalem with my wife, Dr. Melissa Ser, and our sons Ariel and Yonatan.
