He was a current events author and translator, born in Poland. Early in the 1930s, he settled in Soviet Russia and lived in Minsk.  Over the 1930s, he published in the local Yiddish serials—the newspaper Oktyabr (October) and the journal Shtern (Star) (May-June 1935). Later his name disappeared. He reappeared once in the newspaper Eynikeyt (Unity) in Moscow (June 19, 1947), before again disappearing.  He also translated from Russian into Yiddish Tankes in shlakht (Tanks in combat) by S. Amosov (Minsk: Byelorussian State Publ., 1932), 84 pp.
