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.
