David Sheen is an independent journalist and film maker born and raised in Canada, now living in and reporting from Israel. Sheen began blogging when he first moved to Israel in 1999, and he later went on to work as a reporter and editor for the Israeli daily newspaper Haaretz.

His feature-length documentary film on ecological architecture, First Earth, was translated into a dozen languages and published by PM Press in 2010. Sheen also gave a TEDx talk on the topic of the film in Johannesburg, South Africa later that year.

His current work focuses primarily on racial tensions and religious extremism within Israeli society. On the basis of that work, Sheen was named a Human Rights Defender by the Front Line Defenders in 2017, the only person in Israel to receive that honor in a decade.
