about me.

 

i became a journalist when i realized it's a great excuse to learn from very smart people. things i cover usually fall under gender, migration, or conceptualizing information as a power structure. for now, my regional focus is the south caucasus, specifically armenia, where i’m thrashing about and learning to how make films. my phone number is a +374 and yerevan is my home base for now. this all is facilitated by the fact that i speak my fair share of languages - six, to be exact. i’m native in english, french, and italian; fluent in spanish; and i can find my way in german and russian.

my main gig, however, is journalism. i’m working freelance at the moment - i’ve written for the toronto star, open democracy russia, oc media, and some other people. (i was also included as a freelance photographer once in a calvert piece about the armenian revolution, which i witnessed - that was cool. but that’s a whole other story.)

but wait! that’s not all. i’m also what the cool kinds are calling a communications consultant. director, specialist, strategist, person at a bar who gets asked about personal branding — i’ve done it all. i’m working on getting all of that up here, but until then, if that’s what you’re here for, please contact me directly!

want a cv? here's a cv (ici pour le français). click here for my writing. i also occasionally write for the hell of it over here.

want me to write for you? be friends with me? got a bone to pick? email me here. or you can tweet at me if you want. or if we’re going with the bird theme you can try to send a carrier pigeon, but no promises there. all the same though, don't let me tell you what to do.

author's note : this photo is a misrepresentation as these glasses broke in my hands on day 3 of living in yerevan. they will be missed. also, i'm not upside-down in real life. i do, however, wear this much knit.
