At various times in life I’ve described myself as a writer, a student, a Russophile, an aspiring photographer/filmmaker, a nomadic couchsurfer, an activist and a musician – or any combination of the above, with several such preoccupations running simultaneously and somewhat confusingly.

For the time being at least, journalism has prevailed. This site started out as a portfolio of my published work with occasional photoblogs or unclassified ramblings.

In 2011 I decided to expand the initial concept and try to bring together all my disparate creative, cultural and professional experiences in one place – as much for myself as anyone else.

But have no fear, this shall not entail a tedious archive of photo-kitsch purged from the annals of history.

Instead, I’ve added informative sections about my activities in journalism, music, activism and academia, along with a brief resume and a selection of links to other websites that are well worth checking out.

So there you have it – many thanks for visiting! And please don’t hesitate to get in touch via the contact page or any of the social networking links above.
