Charles Kriel (uk)
Charles was born in the back of a circus wagon. An author, photographer and journalist, he now travels to war zones promoting free press. He is also the Co-Founder of Lightful, a publishing platform for civil society organizations.
After running away from the circus, he became a DJ and journalist, eventually landing at BBC Radio 1 with Ibiza as his turf.
Charles travels to frozen conflict zones promoting free press, most recently in Ukraine and Iraq. His most recent mission was building a radio station for women and refugees behind ISIS frontlines.
In his other life Charles is an Emmy-nominated Game Designer. He was the UN’s UK National Expert in New Media. And although he can still juggle, he no longer wears big shoes.
