Cultural entrepreneur. Science enthusiast. Science fiction evangelist.
I am the founder and general director of the Utopia Association and its namesake festival, the Tel-Aviv International festival of science fiction and fantastic film, and its program of Science, Imagination and Future visions events.
Outside of Utopia, I am a producer, content editor, artistic director and consultant with projects and events intertwining science, culture, technology, philosophy, futurism and geek culture in general.
I'm fascinated by the inspirational relationship between science & technology and culture & society. I'm also highly interested in the communication of science and philosophy through speculative and science fiction and the social and political challenges that technological breakthroughs entail.
I organize science communication events, science and cultural programs and singularity-oriented projects. I integrate different cultural disciplines in my projects: film, literature, comics, design, gaming, web art and geek culture among them.
I have 15 years of experience in the culture and art NGO sector in Israel, running volunteer-based organizations and projects, and a decade of experience in systems and requirements analysis.
If you're interested in me presenting, consulting or want to collaborate, please contact me.
Here are two recent talks I gave:
