Tomer Avital was an investigative journalist who gave it all up to pursue transparency in the political system.

After leading a successful crowd-funded campaign called "100 Days of Transparency", he now tracks politicians through creative means, such as private investigators.

In parallel, he raised funds to support the first-ever public lobbyist, authored a murder-mystery thriller set inside the Israeli Parliament, and produces comical clips uncovering the political decision-making process.
