ABOUT ME

Viva Press. That's me. My aptronym is real. I sometimes use my middle name, Sarah, in my byline to avoid being mistaken for a media department or news agency.

It doesn't always work. 

I am presently researching and writing a thesis (MA in Human-Computer Interaction).

I am a teaching assistant in a course on ethics and technology at Reichman University

I am a public speaker and guest lecturer on a variety of topics including innovation, failure, the impact of technologies on our lives, how to tell a story, and everything in between.
I also work as a freelance journalist.

I have a multidisciplinary background and acquire skills quickly. I work and study in the fields of HCI research, education, journalism and media, content and storytelling, project management. I love to apply knowledge from different areas to new contexts and connect the dots to create effective solutions.

A tiny bit more:
