Virag is a former ballerina (yes that classical tutu dancer), today she helps her clientele as a new media guru, personal branding & social media consultant, while enjoys storytelling, writes for different media, and speaks about her journey as a Christian Pro-Israel advocate in a raw honest manner.
Freelancer October 2014 - at PresentI'm working with various clients globally, but primarily from Europe and Israel. I help them with their diverse digital communications needs, including: social media consultation/management, campaign management, online brand building, personal brand building, online visual identity creation, website restructuring and maintenance, visual designs, video editing.
I also offer workshops and training to Universities, solopreneurs, SMEs, and start-up hubs.
With years of experiences, I have gained a solid networking base with fantastic people and influencers from various niches; therefore, I often help them to find each other and liaise between them.
While I enjoy learning new industries, my primary focus is on one-man/woman-show set-ups (artists, influencers), art-related NGOs, women empowerment communities, and pro-Israel advocacy work.

MissCareerLess January 2015 - January 2017MissCareerLess was born above the Ocean between New York and Brussels. MCL is an e-zine that features, writes and talks about women who dare to change.
Grounding something new from scratch requires a lot of work, but above all, endless passion, commitment and to be the Jack of all trades.
Today, I am managing over 45 contributors, editing, writing, interviewing, while developing our online identity, seeking relationships with partners, collaborators, sponsors and guest contributors.
With the help of two ladies, we are proud to see our exponential growth in all social media channels (without any paid ads), monthly readers rate (60K), increasing newsletter subscriptions & the outstanding number of 'thank you' notes.
I am working in WordPress, using and developing the necessary plug-ins, watching out for SEO, keywords, trend analyses, inner linking, copywriting, headline evaluation.
Because empowering each other, indeed, rocks!
European Cockpit Association October 2015 - April 2016Having spent 2 years out of a 9-5 job, I was curious where I stand & how I compare to others in the market, so for a maternity cover I joined ECA.
I learned about the regulatory frameworks of European aviation, represented the European pilots' interest via articles, interviews, PRs, various newsletters, digital & printed promotional materials, and, of course, social media.
I worked in Drupal (CMS) that challenged me after WP, but improved my HTML skills. I used Photoshop, InDesign, Canva and a bunch of other software to create the visual that conveys the message, be it about Aviation Package, OR Regulation or the matters around Trans Airlines.
I liaised with journalists & other stakeholders to make sure they know where we stand.
As I got a catch of breath, I revisit our online identity & asked questions: which page brought the most traffic & why? Could we add some more new media features while keeping our professional voice? How could we write even more engaging pieces?
