AUDIO PRODUCER + MULTIMEDIA JOURNALIST
The first image on the left is a photo of me as a five-year-old living in Jerusalem. The picture below is me present day. As you can see, I still have the same Spock-like ears but none of the same teeth.
In 2015, while getting my degree in media studies,
I won a competition to speak at a TEDx conference about social-emotional learning and research I did for the National Science Foundation. That was my first foray into storytelling on a big platform and that experience inspired me to pursue it professionally.
Since 2018, I've been working as a video producer for Optimist Films, making short-form documentaries focusing on social justice issues. In 2019, I joined KPCC 89.3, the NPR Los Angeles affiliate, as an on-call assistant producer. At the station, I've reported and produced stories for programs including The Frame, Take Two, AirTalk and FilmWeek.
As a freelance writer, I've written for publications like The Wall Street Journal, New York Magazine, InStyle and LAist. As an artist, my editorial illustrations have appeared in outlets such as The Boston Globe, AARP and Longreads.
