Authors Bio for Yonatan Frimer:
Maze designer, venture
capitalist and boyhood genius, Yonatan Frimer was born in 1977, in
Israel, to a Scottish mother and American fish-farmer father. He grew
up near Phoenix, Arizona after living briefly in Israel, New York,
Chicago, and San Diego. He began drawing mazes while bored in
elementary school, and skipped 5th and 8th grades as a result of high
grades and outstanding scores on standardized exams. Graduating from
high school at the age of 16, he began taking classes in photography
and art and moved to Boston at age 18 where he earned an associates
degree in Liberal Arts before transferring to Harvard University to
study Economics. He left Harvard after only one year to pursue a career
in finance and worked for some of the largest venture capital funds. He
tragically crushed his leg in a 2005 motorcycle accident and was
hospitalized for over 3 years, during which time he returned to drawing
mazes. Shortly after the liquidity crisis of 2008, he officially left
his career in venture capital to focus full time on creating mazes.
Frimer currently lives in northern Israel and creates mazes for
newspapers, art galleries, and greeting cards.
