Originally from Ottawa, Canada, Daphne was an award-winning journalist for the likes of CNN and ABC before co-founding Headline Media. With degrees in political science, journalism, and Middle Eastern history, all doors were open – but not one to shy away from a challenge, she pivoted to tech. Makes perfect sense, as Daphne readily admits to a borderline religious belief that restarting is the solution to 100% of technical problems. In spite of it all, she went on to co-create an incredible tech PR firm and was included on Business Insider’s 50 Best PR People In Tech.
Before co-founding Headline Media with Daphne and Mike, Jon covered Israeli business, tech, and politics during his decades-long career as a TV anchorman, reporter, and producer. Despite his measured exterior, Jon is a devotee of the written word and beyond. He learned to read the Code of Hammurabi in its original Akkadian, played bass and blues harp in an R&B band, and is an avid Ultimate Frisbee, tennis, and basketball player. He's still revising his novel about unlikely love set in the background of a chaotic Middle East.
Aaron hails cheerfully from Glasgow, Scotland. A veteran Headline Media employee, Aaron graduated from the University of Leeds with a degree in Politics and Parliamentary Studies. He then proceeded to intern at the U.S. Congress for six months, where he once shared an elevator with Hillary Clinton - and regretfully pitched her nothing at all. Aaron plays the accordion (albeit not as much as he'd like to these days), and he and his wife Sigal have 3 kids, a dog named Tutti and a cat called Frutti.
Roaring out of East Brunswick, NJ, Leora came to Headline Media immediately after completing her MA at IDC Herzliya in international diplomacy. Despite originally planning to become the real-world embodiment of West Wing's Nancy McNally, Leora has found her home in the PR world. Little known stupendous fact: Leora has been collecting snow globes since the age of six, and they now number in the hundreds. She also reads an average of one book every week.
Margalit is our beloved office manager and probably the most authentically Israeli person here - in all the best ways. When she's not handling logistics or patiently explaining Israeli taxes to someone for the 20th time, Margalit moonlights as a post-partum doula and hosts baby massage classes at her home. She lives with her husband and three children.
Originally from Kansas, Luke has moved progressively eastward, with stints in Chicago, Washington D.C., and New York before he arrived in Tel Aviv. A former political journalist, he holds a BA in history from the University of Kansas and an MA in the social sciences from the University of Chicago. Luke enjoys running marathons, which he sees as a convenient excuse for his pasta addiction.
Justine was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa, but currently identifies as a native Tel Avivian - of which we are completely supportive. An amateur painter, she got her degree in fine arts from University of the Witwatersrand (insert Hogwarts joke here), and after developing a strong resume in the Israeli startup scene doing social media and content, she discovered her true passion for PR and came to Headline Media. She, of course, misses her gorgeous Labrador, Harley, and her pet lion, Simba.
A Chicago native, Raanan served as the international press contact for the Air Force after earning his MA in international relations from Bar-Ilan University.

"Smalls" hails from New York City and studied at Tufts University. She worked in PR before moving to Israel, hated it, swore never to return, then started working at Headline Media, whereupon all her previously conceived notions flew out the window. Sarah is a secret crossword puzzle freak and a proud co-parent of our official office mascot - Riff Raff the Beta Fish, a role she describes as "sometimes overwhelming, sure, but deeply fulfilling."
Originally from Los Angeles, Allison holds a BA in political science from UC Berkeley and an MA in political communications from The Hebrew University. Between degrees, she also served as an international media spokesperson for the Air Force. Allie has a love of both musicals and true crime documentaries, and isn't sure if there may be a psychological correlation between the two. Allie's great-grandfather was a WWI British army fighter pilot who, according to family lore, helped shoot down the Red Baron.
A cornerstone of our burgeoning British contingent, "JoMo" began his career working in public affairs for the representative organization of the UK Jewish community, and his natural penchant for relationship-building combined with his interest in consumer tech eventually brought him to Headline Media. JoMo earned his B.A. in international relations from the University of Birmingham. He is a passionate cook, drawing on the culinary traditions of his Indian/Iraqi heritage - and is probably not as good at backgammon as he thinks he is.
A Turkish politics aficionado, onetime geopolitical risk consultant, and yoga enthusiast, Garrett grew up in South Florida, earning a BA in political science at Florida Atlantic University. His desire to better understand the world and how an idea in a small sliver of the globe can move mountains brought him to Israel. When he’s not indulging his love for early 2000s pop punk, Garrett is probably binge-watching episodes of Shark Tank and Judge Judy.
Originally from Robbinsville, New Jersey, Gavriella graduated from Vassar College with a BA in neuroscience and behavior, and is currently studying for an M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from Bar Ilan University. Though she’d originally planned to apply her science wizardry as a surgeon, the medical world’s loss became the media and tech world’s gain. Before joining Headline, Gavriella worked at the Jerusalem Post and at a cybersecurity company. A competitive soccer player for 17 years, she’s also partial to letting loose by dancing around her apartment with her husband in their Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan adult onesies.
A proud part of Headline Media’s robust Canadian contingent, Tamara obtained a bachelor’s degree in secondary education from the University of Alberta, and she also holds a master’s degree in foreign literature from Ben Gurion University.

A fitness enthusiast who runs, rock-climbs, and takes a weekly SUP class, Tamara also enjoys unwinding by baking cookies, reading a good book, and doting on her cat, Lev.
Terri is a native of Johannesburg, South Africa, where she studied at the University of the Witwatersrand and earned a BA in Performing and Visual Arts. Upon graduation, Terri worked in social media and PR for a Tel Aviv record company before joining a high-tech start-up as a content writer and natural language generation (NLG) technician. An expert at Thai kickboxing, Terri enjoys unwinding by indulging her passion for live music, playing soccer, and enjoying time with her pitbull mix, Shadie. Just keep her away from party sparklers, of which she has a longstanding (but very rational!) fear.
Proudly from the Bronx, Sarah graduated magna cum laude from Queens College with an urban planning degree. Prior to joining Headline Media, she worked in the non-profit sector, lived on a kibbutz, backpacked solo in Asia for five months, and helped plan Israel’s largest tech conference, which deepened her interest in the country’s tech ecosystem. Sarah’s daily commute from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv has turned her into an avid podcast listener, but she’s no less passionate about enjoying a good meal or a weekend of outdoor activities.
As a youngster in Stoke-on-Trent, Ben wrote to then-UK Home Secretary Jack Straw to fact-check his dad’s claim that his 8 p.m. bedtime was governmentally mandated. Ben’s been going to any lengths necessary to win an argument ever since. He holds a BA in History from the University of Oxford and an MA in European Studies from the College of Europe’s Warsaw campus. Prior to joining Headline Media, Ben oversaw the IDF’s British media relations and worked in research and media consulting for the Movement for Reform Judaism in the UK.
Arielle comes from the Bay Area by way of DePaul University, where she graduated magna cum laude with degrees in public relations and public health. After working in the healthcare field, she decided to put her other degree to use and entered the PR world. When she’s not leading media outreach for her clients, you might find Arielle doing Pilates, hiking, making one of her famous margaritas, or FaceTimeing with her family’s two dogs, Sukie and Raider (named for the Oakland Raiders, of course).
Jacob is as passionate about East Asian history and current affairs as he is averse to mayonnaise (although that didn’t stop him from eating, on a dare, an entire tuna roll lathered with the loathsome condiment). A fluent Mandarin speaker, Jacob holds a BA in Asian Studies and International Relations from Hebrew University. Before joining Headline Media, he was a researcher for the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs and worked as a market researcher for a firm connecting Israeli startups to China.
Prior to joining Headline Media, David was a freelance content writer and worked in PR for the design and hospitality industries.

A native of Far Rockaway, New York, David holds a BA in Government Diplomacy and Strategy from IDC Herzliya.
Shelly came to Headline Media after serving in the foreign affairs unit of the Israeli Air Force. Originally from Chicago, she studied at American University and IDC Herzliya and holds a BA in International Relations and Conflict Resolution. In her spare time, Shelly enjoys listening to news podcasts, playing ping pong in the park, and spotting people’s doppelgangers, a task at which she’s preternaturally skilled.
Hailing from Detroit, Josh came roaring out of the Motor City to earn a BA in History from the University of Michigan. A politics enthusiast, he’s also known for his eclectic taste in music: One minute he could be listening to Cat Stevens, only to jam to Young Thug the next. During his military service, Josh served as a sniper and Hummer commander in the 202 Unit of the IDF’s Paratroopers.
Like his hometown of Albany, NY, Isaac brings a dash of small-town charm to an urban sensibility. After graduating from Tufts University, where he studied English Literature and Film, Isaac came to Tel Aviv to teach English and get his MA in Education, writing a passion-project thesis on the existential philosophy of Emmanuel Levinas as found in the film Before Sunrise. For this self-diagnosed cinephile, watching 4-5 films a week is the rule, not the exception. Often described as “like if Philip Roth had bad ADHD,” Isaac strives to inject a literary flair into his daily PR work. He is allergic to cats and pollen.
Now living in the heart of the Start-Up Nation, Sydney has previously lived in her native Oyster Bay, NY; Cape Town; and New Orleans, where she earned a BA in English Literature and Psychology at Tulane University. Prior to bringing her wordsmithing skills to bear in the world of public relations, Sydney was an English teacher.
The Second City was Kate’s first city, but before arriving in Israel, this Chicago native worked as a celebrity stylist in New York. She has also worked for a non-profit in Chicago and on the Google Duplex team, and volunteered with asylum seekers and refugees in Israel for a year after her Birthright trip. Kate holds a BS in Business from Indiana University and an MA in Government from IDC Herzliya.
Originally from Monsey, New York, Mike has traversed the globe in pursuit of natural beauty. An avid hiker and camper, his peregrinations have taken him across the continental U.S., Quebec, and the Scottish coastline. When he’s not enjoying the great outdoors, there’s a good chance he’s indulging his Dungeons and Dragons passion. Prior earning a BA in Communications from IDC Herzliya, Mike was the commander of the medical unit for the IDF Armored Corps’ 77th Battalion.
Born in Palo Alto, Nathan grew up in the suburbs of Cleveland before earning a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Political Science from Bar Ilan University and a master’s degree in public policy from Tel Aviv University.

He and his wife are the proud parents of a young daughter.
