I am a digital anthropologist currently based in Nashville. Previously I lived in Baltimore. Before that, I served in the Israeli Defense Force as a sergeant in a combat reconnaissance battalion. I obtained my Master’s in Anthropology and Sociology from the Hebrew University. My studies focused on organizational behavior, online communities, and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), and culminated into a master’s research thesis studying virtual semi-anonymous decentralized collectives. After I graduated I worked for two years managing both day-to-day operations and long-term projects (CRM design and implementation, development of a WebApp, grant proposal submissions) at Mother Goose on the Loose, an educational early literacy company and MaxxContent, where I worked to optimize and automate operations. Currently I am a cybersecurity analyst at Virtustream specializing in cloud security for virtual and physical machines.
