My diverse multi-cultural background enables me to understand the human, technical, and data-driven aspects of projects.
I have collected qualitative data by applying the traditional ethnographic and anthropological techniques in new digital enviornments. My work has created new schemes for non-traditional data, that have been published in peer reviewed journals.
I incorporate Mixed-Method techniques and platforms in my work. This allows me to rapidly achieve the potential for both highly segmented summaries and larger overall insights. I use text analytics to dive deeper into the initial Mixed-Method insights.
I have experiences managing and operating cybersecurity services in a private cloud enviornment. Specifically, I have worked within the umbrella of cybersecurity operations as an analyst, engineer, manager, and data scientist roles.
I focus on empowering my teams to quickly accomplish our objectives. My diverse array of skills and multifaceted background help me lead teams of cross talented individuals. I studied organizational leadership under Boas Shamir one the worlds leading scholars on the subject.
My extensive anthropological background grants me the ability to account for the important role that culture and community play in communication. I adopt holistics perspectives to frame, contextualize, and understand the sublties of communication in different settings.
I have published a peer reviewed article, a masters thesis and an undergraduate thesis. In addition, I have authored and edited non-academic publications and RFP responses and proposals. I love writing collaboratively with other authors, and am always on the lookout for my next collaborator.

Digital ReligionAs a part of the LINKS iCore team of researchers at the University of Haifa, I participated in a research project that analyzed ways in which primordial communities (re)form social boundaries through the use of new media (i.e. the Internet, mobile communication) and knowledge constructed online. This project focused on achieving a better understanding of Jewish (sometimes religious) App developers using the a Mixed-Method coding scheme I developed to understand and interpret data.
What People Say?
Very few people have the opportunity to report to a manager who is also a coach and mentor, but I did when I worked with Alon. I had the pleasure of working with Alon at MaxxContent, collaborating on multiple projects. I was particularly impressed by Alon's ability to handle even the toughest projects effortlessly. That skill often takes years to develop among IT/Software service professionals, but it seemed to come perfectly naturally to him. Any employee would be lucky to have Alon as a manager. As leader or manager, Alon earns my highest recommendation.
Head of Department (LMS & PHP) at DevDigital LLC
It was a privilege working with Alon, a project manager at MaxxContent. Precise in defining the scope of work/task management, decision making and along with his leadership, knowledge, hard work and dedication, MaxxContent was altogether at a new level. It was always seamless interacting with Alon regarding every aspect, be it programming difficulty, defining logic, developers concern, managing deadlines or anything. Having him was a dream come true and he will definitely be everyone's apple of the eye whereever he goes. I wish him all the best for his future
PHP Developer at Carmel Vision
I have had the pleasure to work with Alon on a very challenging, time-sensitive project with a very large customer. Alon is a great leader, and drives excellence in communications, actions, and quality. You can thank him for his clear, concise and actionable communications, and his passion to deliver only the best results!
VP West Region Sales at GTL
Although I am Alon's mother, I was his employer for two years and am writing this through the lens of our work together.
When he began working for me, Alon listened carefully to all of the information stored in my head regarding MGOL. Without compromising the quality or character of the program, he installed new systems for communicating with clients, designed email templates and created databases. he hired a web designer and interpreted my vision into understandable instructions that resulted in a redesigned website and a private CRM database for scheduling workshops and speaking engagements. Alon developed an online storage system that enabled quick retrieval of files, discouraged information duplication, and prevented files from getting lost.
Alon's ability to learn quickly. fit into his surroundings, and converse comfortably with people from diverse backgrounds has increased my workload in good ways. Clients often compliment Alon's professionalism, quick responses to questions, wide range of knowledge, creative problem solving skills, and expert communication skills. Although early childhood is not his passion nor area of expertise, he has become a knowledgeable spokesperson for MGOL as well as for the importance of early childhood education.
