Skills

Fiber arts (crochet, weaving, macrame) for prototyping, soft electric circuits, Arduino Lilypad, e-textiles, conductive fibers, lego engineering.
Owner at Old Stuff Place, where Israeli kids learn traditional crafts and maker skills. 
My major obsession is the over-use of plastic in modern day products, specifically plastic bags. So I crochet with them, and add soft circuits to my plastic-textile creations. 
This year I am teaching 5 classes at schools from Raanana to Beit Shemesh. I'm preparing 2 groups of kids for next season's FLL tournament and I'm teaching arduino to gifted children in grades 7-9.
I am in the process of setting up workshops to empower young women in the areas of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math). I will teach girls to macrame and crochet (Art) from various fibers (Science) with the addition of electronic and digital components (Technology),  thus merging the old and new worlds of crafting and the maker movement. Tying knots is very Mathematically oriented.  The workshops will include building spinning wheels,  looms and other tools for fiber arts (Engineering).
I'm  Head Digital Nomad at Indagate [in-duh-geyt] (from Latin: to investigate; research). I provide information, translation (Hebrew to English), and editing (English) services to Israeli academic researchers who would like to publish in international journals.
