My day to day involves Permaculture design, studies, teaching and implementation. I participate as a student in a Permaculture diploma program.I'm also active in my local community garden and green neighborhood of Maoz Aviv, and participate and manage projects in several Permaculture initiatives in Tel - Aviv. Managing and pushing forward 'forestway' as leading Permaculture school and cooperative for permaculture students and professionals.
In recent years, before taking Permaculture as a profession, I established and managed at Matrix, one of Israel's leading IT companies, an Internet Strategy service (RULERI). The Service led research, planning and business consulting projects to companies and organizations such as Globes, IDF, Sports Channel, Bank Hapoalim, and more. From these years I bring extensive experience in designing and managing complex projects, business advice and experience in research, design, concept building and large scale project management.
Following a decision to spend all my time and energy in things that will make my family better while benefiting the world, I left the world of high tech and have brought this experience to initiate, plan and implement projects with social and ecological value in Israel and to build the infrastructure in Israel for Permaculture studies and implantation in all area of life.
I have a bachelor degree from the Hebrew University in Philosophy, Economics and Political Science) parallel to Oxford's PPE program.
