By trade a watchmaker, he was a Zionist activist who lived in Buenos Aires and other regions of Argentina.  Yankev Yoselovitsh, who in 1908 founded the monthly Di yidishe hofnung (Jewish hope)—later a biweekly, in 1912 a weekly, in 1917 with the name change to Di yidishe velt (The Jewish world)—coopted him onto the editorial board.  He was the technical editor, copyeditor, and also the author of articles.  He apparently died in the 1930s in Buenos Aires.
