About Me

I established myself by writing poetry, philosophy, and science articles, and then a book. In May 2012, I launched my first website to serve as a digital portfolio. This website is the newest incarnation of that portfolio and it is connected to my Facebook Page and my tutoring services (Andrew Blitman Tutoring). Here is my resume to download if you wish.

But enough about me. I hope that you enjoy the content while you are here!

Thank you for visiting,

The Blitman Anthology: Quotes, Poems, and Essays for the 21st-Century College Student

The Blitman Anthology

Andrew Blitman grew up in Cooper City, Florida, and graduated from the University of Miami. There, he studied marine affairs and blogged on WordPress. The blog posts evolved into “The Blitman Anthology” after the author wrote, “Birthright 2012: A Voyage into the Heart and Soul of Israel”.


Birthright 2012: A Voyage into the Heart and Soul of Israel

birthright-2012-cover

“Birthright 2012” is a personal account of my voyage throughout Israel. The outer story incorporates humor, science, history, and my own observations as I explore the land. It should appeal to the armchair traveler who would like to experience the country but is unable to and also to anyone who would like to learn more about this bastion of democracy in the Middle East. Beneath this outer story there exists an inner story. Filled with humor, philosophy, and poetry, this underlying aspect of the book follows my own personal voyage to self-awareness. “Birthright 2012” chronicles the daily activities of my University of Miami Birthright trip to Israel. Each chapter highlights a single day’s events, activities, and sights. The book is chock-full of deep personal insights, light humorous anecdotes, witty observations, and scientific and historical facts. I hope you will follow me on my journey through the Land of Milk and Honey.


Wild Writers: The Animal World’s Greatest Poets

Writing Wild Cover 7

Why read this book? Because everybody – from the cosmic to the microscopic – has a story to tell. I have always wanted to know what goes on inside the heads of animals. Poetry was the tool that made this possible. “Wild Writers” allows us to have imaginary conversations with our pets and other creatures and empathize with them.

Who knows? We might end up learning new things along the way.


A Multifaceted Comparison of Highly Migratory Species Regulation in the Caribbean (the United States, the Bahamas, and Jamaica)

My Masters Project in Marine Affairs, that assesses and compares the conservation policies that protect billfish – marlin, sailfish, and swordfish – in the United States, the Bahamas, and Jamaica. Through the use of ArcGIS (Geographic Information Systems) and a matrix/checklist of 78 distinct criteria, I determine which of the three countries could serve best as a model for highly migratory species regulation in the English-speaking areas of the Caribbean region. In July 2015, I presented my findings at the ESRI (Environmental Systems Research Institute) User Conference in San Diego, before an international audience.

(Regarding “Birthright 2012: A Voyage into the Heart and Soul of Israel”)

I purchased Andrew Blitman’s book shortly before a recent ten-day trip to Israel (my first). It proved to be a very worthwhile purchase. The book is well-written, entertaining and packed with information. I used it as a guide and reference source for each of the cities I visited. Although my guide for the ten-day trip was extremely knowledgeable, I found much information in Blitman’s book that went beyond that which the guide provided, and I was pleased to have it with me at each of the sites I visited during a busy 10 days in Israel. It greatly enhanced my enjoyment of the trip. I highly recommend it.

(Regarding “Birthright 2012: A Voyage into the Heart and Soul of Israel”)

“‘Birthright 2012: A Voyage into the Heart and Soul of Israel’ is both a study of ethnic identity and journey of a young person’s development. Insightful lessons garnered from intensive exposure to one’s heritage make for an engaging read. Quite a ride.”
