Daniel Bogre Udell

I'm a Brooklyn-based web designer, a BFA candidate Design & Technology and BA/MA candidate in History at The New School for Social Research. Originally from NYC, I grew up in Pennsylvania and attended The Hotchkiss School in Lakeville, CT.

I've worked in both American and European politics, as a student organizer for Barack Obama in 2008 and intern for the Republican Left of Catalonia (ERC) and European Free Alliance (EFA). My passions for politics and information design have recently led me to journalism and blogging, so I've found a natural home at Global Voices. I am one of the Catalan edition's co-editors, as well as a Catalan – English translator. I can be found on twitter @dbudell.
