Hello and welcome to my new website. I’m planning on using this as a portfolio of my writing, video production, photography and other work so you can see why you should definitely accept that pitch/job application I just sent you. You can also see my CV here.
This site is a work in progress, so it’s not fully finished yet. I’m intending this to be a place to collect various kinds of work I’ve done and to showcase them for people interested in my work, or in commissioning or hiring me.
I don’t remember when I first used Wikipedia, but it was a consistent presence throughout my university days from 2005-2009. In the past 19 years, Wikipedia has become consistently better, more comprehensive and ubiquitous in Western society at a slow yet steady pace that means it almost never hits the headlines for any huge advance or change…
At the end of 2020, I was asked to teach a module in Digital Media to the International Media and Business MA course at Westminster University. I also gave frequent talks about my work while at Wikimedia UK on the use of Wikipedia in education and academia.
I have this American friend in his 70s who I met when I was volunteering for Obama in 08. He is looking forward to tonight's game and is getting into the Anglo spirit... https://t.co/GpcIZ5bLjPRead More

@NxlAnglo You don't get some kind of special ability to have useful opinions because your 30X great grandmother sired some of Edward III's bastard kids.Read More
Thanks to @lloyd_rm for asking in Parliament how many people who have claimed asylum in the UK in recent years are Kurdish. I repeatedly asked this as an FoI request, and was told it would be too expensive to assemble the data. Now the govt says they don't have the data at all. https://t.co/bYK9hXreVdRead More
We can at least take comfort in the fact that in the last 3 months of Lords expenses claims (March-May 2022), Mone only attended Parliament twice and claimed no expenses. https://t.co/arQNfmfOOBRead More
In my writing and advocacy work, I care about human rights, free access to information, a socially and economically more equal society, and preferably not destroying the planet we all have to live on.
As a freelancer and while working for Wikimedia UK, I have made a lot of video work, from an hour long documentary to event vlogs about specific projects.
On the right, you can see my biggest project to date, a documentary about the work of the historian Ara Sarafian to foster reconciliation and understanding between Armenians, Turks and Kurds during the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.
