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.
i also write freelance a lot - in fact, my freelance-to-contracted work ratio has been rapidly increasing. 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.)
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 could even send a carrier pigeon. don't let me tell you what to do.
