As the Managing Editor for Global Voices, I explore new ways, formats and technologies to tell stories grounded in local knowledge aimed at a global audience. I first started in GV in 2015 as a writer and translator.
Having worked and lived mostly in Central Europe, Central Asia, the Himalayan region and East Asia, I write about those regions with a particular focus on identity and historical memory, minority groups, arts and culture, language, and less known cross-regional cultural influences. I often teach on-line about media and culture-related issues, and have a passion for literary translation, also acting as Editor at Large for Central Asia at Asymptote Journal
