I’m Turi, and I founded Parlia with J. Paul (jape on Parlia). Thank you for being with us.
Before Parlia, I was a journalist, entrepreneur and investor.
In 2007, I founded Demotix, which became the world’s largest network of photojournalists. Since, I’ve been investing in new media with North Base Media. And before, I was a publisher, journalist, author, talking head and political analyst (mostly focused on the Middle East).
I speak a bunch of languages, have lived in some amazing places, and I sit on the boards of a few media non-profits. Studies: Arabic and History at Oxford and the Institut in Damascus, Hebrew at the Hebrew University, and I dropped out of a PhD at NYU in Anthropology of Religion.
My expertise:Media, Startups, Journalism, Middle East politics and history
