In the past seven years I have been working as an independent journalist, reporting from 10 different countries. Specializing in in-depth features and on-the-ground reportage, I have been covering mostly the environment and climate change as well as various international issues.
My works – also including news items, commentary and op-eds – have been published in a large number of media outlets, in my home country Israel and in several other countries in multiple languages. Among these publications are Haaretz, Ynet, Die Welt, Toronto Star, IPS news agency, Swissinfo and more. In addition, I have been a regular contributor to the Israeli magazine Masa Acher for several years, and responsible for its environmental section since October 2011. A sample of my writings can be found here.
I hold a Bachelor degree (hons) in Humanities and Social Sciences from the Open University in Israel, coupled with a Diploma from the Koteret School of Journalism. I have also earned a Masters degree in the Erasmus Mundus programme Journalism, Media and Globalisation with a specialism in Media and Politics at the University of Amsterdam in affiliation with Aarhus University and the Danish School of Media and Journalism.
Additionally, I have completed an 11-week editorial internship at Die Welt‘s newsroom in Berlin (as part of the Trialogue of Cultures programme of the Herbert Quandt Foundation), and another with the Earth Beat show on Radio Netherlands Worldwide.
Prior to my writing experience, I was involved in video production since my youth, when I took part as cameraman, director and chief editor in a youth TV crew that produced two shows. This early experience was complemented by taking filmmaking as my major in high-school. Later on, for three years I have worked as crane camera operator as well as cameraman (both studio and ENG) and assistant cameraman with OB production vans, with three cable channels in Israel and in more than 20 other productions, including student films, music videos, independent movies and others.
