An alumna of the prestigious ASCAP Film Scoring workshop (2016), Nami is a graduate of the highly rigorous Scoring for Motion Pictures and TV program (SMPTV) at the University of Southern California (2015), and holds a B.A. in multi-style composition from the Jerusalem Academy of Music, where she was admitted directly to sophomore year.

Nami plays flute, piano, guitars, uke and recently picked up a clarinet. After completing her IDF service she traveled the world with a big backpack (China, New Zealand, Australia, Thailand), and a small backpack (Israel, Europe, The US). She is a Trekkie who watches too many movies and shows but also enjoys hiking, oil painting, running and (classical, jazz, folk, rock, pop, indie) music. She’ll beat you at coffee drinking, and hummus-eating and chess.
