I’m an editor at leading English-language weekly the Kyiv Post in Kyiv, Ukraine, where I write about business, culture, media, politics, social issues, technology and travel, and extensively covered EuroMaidan protests in Ukraine. Sometimes I take photos and shoot video.
In autumn 2012, in the run-up to Ukraine’s parliamentary elections, I worked with the Institute of Mass Information (Інститут масової інформації) in Kyiv, writing and translating stories about press freedom violations and journalists’ rights.
Over the past six years I’ve worked as a reporter, web editor and business editor for other daily, weekly and monthly local and regional newspapers and magazines.
A native of Portland, Oregon, a graduate of Portland State University and a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer (Ukraine 2010-2012), I enjoy Stumptown Coffee when I can get it, street food and cross-country train travel. Besides the U.S., I’ve lived in both Eastern Europe and China, and I’m hoping to add a few more places to that list.
