Ashley Rindsberg

Ashley Rindsberg is a novelist and essayist. Born in South Africa, Rindsberg immigrated to the US as a child. His family moved around the country until settling in San Diego. After earning degrees in Philosophy and Science & Technology Studies at Cornell University, Rindsberg worked at prestigious digital NGO, Internet Archive, where he ran the Internet Bookmobile project. His work for the Archive took him to Egypt, where he installed the country’s first Internet Bookmobile at the Library of Alexandria. In 2004, Rindsberg made a life changing decision to take a job as a deckhand on a Swedish sailing yacht. For three months, Rindsberg sailed with the boat’s skipper-owner through the Ionian and onto the Aegean, on a journey that eventually brought him to Tel Aviv. Over the course of 13 years spent wandering Israel’s “unholy city,” Rindsberg encountered the beggars, dreamers, artists, musicians and madmen who would inspire his first collection of fiction, Tel Aviv Stories. Rindsberg has contributed essays and journalism to a number of publications. He was managing editor of the short-lived but culturally influential English-language Israeli magazine, 18, and served as a founding associate editor of long-form Mideast policy and culture magazine, The Tower.
