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 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.
