My name is Roni. I was born in 1991 in Tel Aviv, Israel.
I started playing piano when I was eight years old at the Givatayim City Conservatory, and discovered my love for the written word when I was thirteen. During high school I took a detour from the arts and studied physics, math and chemistry, and built huge robots. During that time, and during my military service that came after high school, I continued writing and studying piano, slowly venturing from classical music deeper and deeper into jazz, and performing with various groups. In the end of 2013 I published my first book - a collection of fictional stories in Hebrew.
In the last year of my military service I discovered acting and felt a true passion for the art. I spent the next few years honing my skills, doing various amateur theater shows, student films and acting classes. My target was clear in my mind - I dreamed of getting accepted to an acting school in New York and moving there. In 2016 it finally happened, and I started studying in the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York.
Today I'm still studying at the Academy, while trying to infiltrate the jazz scene in New York with some upbeat, dynamic jazz, together with my most talented jazz group - Enigama. I still write short stories, now mostly in English, and I recently started writing plays as well.
My vision as an artist is to simply create, without a rhyme or reason. A smart man once told me that true art lacks reason, and maybe art is the reason itself. I do not know, I simply know that I wish to create, and wish to see the world through different eyes all the time. Alone, we are very small as human beings, even if we sometimes make the mistake of thinking we are big, but with art we can really become bigger than ourselves, and take our souls on a remarkable journey with a destination unknown.
