I'm Global Voices’ executive director, since the middle of 2008. Prior to working with GV, I spent 10 years working in media development in the former Soviet Union and Asia, supporting and training journalists and working on media co-productions. I'm also a photographer, and have worked and traveled in 80 countries. In 2012 I published White Road, a chronicle of travel in Central Asia. I'm currently also a Fellow in Digital Studies at the U.S. Library of Congress, and a former fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society, where I studied digital storytelling and online communities. My personal website is ivansigal.net, and I speak Russian, manage in German, have forgotten Slovak and Czech, and can make it home in Thai.
