I started my journey in the communication industry at the age of 16, as a reporter and editor at local newspapers in my hometown Sderot. Later, I worked at the Israeli Second Authority for Television and Radio in Jerusalem. At the same time, I elected to be the Israeli representative at the global online journalism project (VOICES). Moving to the other side of the media fence was natural. Over the years as a communication consultant in award-winning firms, I accompanied media activities and campaigns for a variety of organizations and public figures. Furthermore, my main professional occupation is strategic consulting for technology businesses. Over the years, I have worked with leading tech brands.

The articles focus on media and technology. Many of the pieces are also dealing on the periphery representation. From this perspective, I have founded Media-Representations web project, which aims to stimulate a critical discourse about the media coverage of populations and disadvantaged groups in Israeli society.
