Eli came to DJR with a wealth of experience working in many different parts of the world. Born and raised in Israel, Eli brought his skills to DJR via many different locales including Israel, South Africa, San Diego and finally Minneapolis, where he lives with his wife and three children. Being an Israeli, Eli developed an interest in studying the controversies of the Middle East through the eyes of an architect and urban planner. He continued evolving this interest by exploring religion and territory and its effect on the built environment. Eli enjoys traveling, spending time with his family and educating his office workers on the idiosyncrasies of his amazing hummus.
