Vadim Isakov · March, 2011

Born in Uzbekistan, I got my MA in Journalism in the U.S. in 2002. That year I came back to Central Asia to work for different local and international organizations. I was fortunate to travel all around the world perfecting my reporting skills and falling in love with complexity and diversity of global culture. I currently teach journalism at the Roy H. Park School of Communication at Ithaca College in the U.S.
