Particle accelerator and social media architect at Burson-Marsteller, EMEA http://krz.ch/Twiplomacy
Introduction

Managing Director, Digital with Burson-Marsteller EMEA.

Formerly Associate Director and Social Media architect at the Wold Economic Forum where I have brought the world to Davos through the use of social media such as Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Google+, YouTube, Livestream and Wikipedia.

Trained as a journalist I spent 6 years as a correspondent in the Baltic States for Agence France Presse, Libération and the Daily Telegraph. I spent 8 years as deputy editor in chief at EuroNews television. In Lithuania I launched the In Your Pocket city guides (www.inyourpocket.com) which have grown into a small publishing empire in Europe.

In my free time I film and edit videos for my numerous YouTube channels.
