Who am I?

A smaller and less sophisticated model of me came into existence in 1985. Despite being born in Israel, a war inflicted nation in the Middle East, I was hugged, fed and therefore survived.

I grew up in suburban Tel Aviv, where there are no camels at all, just a lot of stray cats. The cats adjusted well to the hot coastal climate with sun, sandy beaches, and the endless supply of rubbish contributing to a prosperous and strong community.

The institutions facilitating the expansion of the cat habitat had considerable control over my life too, and I had varying degrees of success in resisting religious and nationalistic coercion. While my immediate surrounding was relatively safe, around the fences it was dominated by trauma, suffering and loss.

For comfort, I turned to music. Music was good way to make sense out of what at times seemed like an absurd existence. It opened a door to a dialogue that transcended the technicalities of language.

In the spring of 2008 I left my home town on good terms, with good memories and mental scars for life. The destination: Melbourne, Australia, where I spent almost 13 years doing all sorts of stuff.

In the end of 2020 I moved to lutruwita (Tasmania) with my partner. We lived in a farm for the better part of the year and have now settled in nipaluna (Hobart), by the foot of kunanyi (Mt Wellington), where we often climb and hike. Polite wallabies replaced the angry cats and my gardening skills are improving

Work history

I work in cultural spaces. in the seam between technology and people.
My practice ranges from design to production, and management. From planning, organising and monitoring complex logistic operations over extended periods, to performing specific technical tasks under pressure. My experience ranges from pushing heavy boxes onto filthy trucks, to serving coffee politely to the most grumpy old men, from human resources management, to museums, film, broadcast media and management of large-scale festival productions. I’ve worked as a freelancer and in partnerships, in the private corporate sector and in all levels of government.

The Answer to the Question of Life, the Universe and Everything Else

I don’t know. 42 is just as likely an answer as promoting the values of love and friendship, paying rent or being recognised. I ask myself existential questions like this all the time and I am coming up with all sorts of answers, some of which I publish in my blog.

If I had to sum it up, I would rather not. The question of why I do things has a history in the philosophical valley between Rousseau and Hobbes, nature and nurture, hope and despair, joy and anger, reflection, documentation, curiosity, ignorance, desire, love and the absence of a better choice.
