My name is Darren Blum. I was born on March 13th 1973 in Johannesburg, South Africa. My family and I moved to Israel when I was 15 years old. After completing 12th grade I served as a combat medic in the IDF from 1991 – 1994. After the army I studied Optometry at Bar Ilan university from 1995 – 1999. I got married in November 1999 to Daphne who is from France; we meet at University where she studied biology. We have 3 amazing daughters, Eden 14 years old, Ashley 12 and Halley who is 6. I own and have worked as an Optometrist in my private clinic since 2001.
