Bio

I’ve been working at the intersection of technology, media and civil society for over five years, with projects extending from Europe, the Middle-East and the Caucasus to South and Southeast Asia, Southern Africa and the USA. Inspired by my parents’ escape from the Soviet Union, I have sought to empower other at-risk communities. While working in the Caucasus I helped to found and develop Bem, a youth progressive action center that serves as a platform for Armenian youth to build an active civil society through technology, art, and media for free-expression.  I’m the founder and Co-Director in charge of technology at Digital Democracy, an organization that works with local partners to put information into the hands of people who need it most. I also consult on new media strategy and produces films for civic engagement with my company New Words.

    My wife is from a former Soviet occupied country (Czech Republic) and the stories her parents tell are chilling.
