Current occupation


Work experience

Recent workshops have included the Betzavta methodology, which uses the dynamics of the group to shape the content of the workshop. Topics covered include democratic decision-making, minorities/majorities, conflict over limited resources, intercultural communication. Activities are engaging and interactive with a reflection session following each activity to reflect and learn from each other’s behavior.

Training and workshops have taken place in the US and all across Europe, including Denmark, the Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Romania, Moldova, Ukraine, Slovakia, Armenia and Georgia.

Educational pathway

Bachelor's degree in Computer Science. MA in Interactive Digital Media. MA in Intercultural Conflict Management.
A series of intercultural mediation training as well as the Betzavta training.

All educational experiences are relevant and have contributed to my work. The technology background allows me to use it as a medium, when appropriate, to facilitate dialogue and disseminate results. The best trainings, however, are not necessarily technology-based, nor are they theory-based or overall academic. They are rooted in the personal experience and how we behave towards ourselves and each other.
