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.

@cit_collins i should simply declare myself to be a company resident in belize, it would probably be a lot easier to avoid these kinds of taxes!Read More
@MaxGA92 unfortunately the UK government has a fixed price that I need to pay if my partner wants to visit me here. that's why i go to milan a lot to visit her instead, because it's far cheaper.Read More
@StevenDando yeah i'm used to this now. i just feel like i should at least remind everyone else how stupid this country's government is.Read More
@melikedonertas Obviously if you can spare almost 1000 euros, getting the long term one is better value. our problem is that I have no idea where we will be living in 2 years, 5 years or 10 years.Read 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.
