Tim Kirby

Outsider inside
­From the mean streets of Cleveland to a Kazakh village on the barren steppe to hosting a national radio political talk show entirely in Russian, Tim is not your usual Moscow expat, in fact he hates the term. Coming to Moscow like a lot of poor migrants, Tim came with a few dollars in his pocket and managed to find work, first in the video game industry and then in political talk and analysis on TV, Radio, and the Russian Internet. Tim is much deeper inside of Russian society and presents a more unique perspective than other foreign analysts.
