Do you have experience in Journalism? Let us know who you are, and who you represent.

I do not have any experience in journalism; However, I was a marketing and sales director for a specialist construction company for two years. I continue in the communication world as a business development representative in the fields of agronomy and horticulture. It has been my perception that there is a distinct lack of a guiding hand in this movement. I understand that Dr. Ashurbeyli currently works in the aerospace field and is working on this project on the side. Due to politics in my native country I have been spurred on to pursue this project in earnest and would like to help in kind. I would like to propose an introduction of sorts for the current leadership. This would be comprised of a bio of each member working in official capacity for the project including details such as native language, second language, current profession, current role, how you came into this position, why you were motivated to join this project, and what the immediate goals or next steps are for the person being interviewed in regards to their operational capacity.
I'm in a unique position, given my current work obligations, that allows me to be available to perform such interviews at times that are comfortable for the recipient. I believe I can complete these brief interviews in 15-30 minutes by voice, video chat, or email. I feel that this project would help clarify some details for the many individuals that are interested in Asgardia. I think the next step forward is to begin learning how to communicate as an organization removing some of the general buzz or fog that currently makes up the organization. This would in turn be a great opportunity to organize the translator volunteers to deliver finished approved pieces for the administration to publish as they see fit. I would volunteer my time freely to accomplish this project and could even provide templates using the existing Asgardian layout and css to make these readily available outside of the forum.
(As there is no method on the forums to private message please let me know the best way to follow up on this if there is interest.)

Have 5 years broad media education and some experince as newspaper editor, journalist and photographer. + Short specialized education in teaching others newspaper focused media basics.
So I will try to be around to see if I can do some helpful input :)
I don't work in media now, I changed course to mental health care... but it's good if my knowledge can be useful either way :)
