Hello Folks! This is my old-school website — now a digital archive. For an updated look at what I’m working on, check out lakitalki.com

Born and raised in California, I am a producer, educator and writer.

With roots in Kochi, Prague and the San Francisco Bay Area, I divide my  time between the places I feel at home. Over the past few years, I have produced and written for newspapers, radio and magazines from Gaborone, Botswana to Los Angeles, California. Written pieces have appeared in Yes! Magazine, Makeshift Magazine, KQED Arts and AJ+ and video as appeared on Fusion Media, AJ+, The New York Times, Die Zeit Online and KQED Arts.

Previously, I taught in Ladakh, India, and spent a year as a Fulbright fellow teaching, and doing freelance work in Germany. I lived and worked in India for three years, serving on staff with Indicorps, and then working with Navdanya‘s biodiversity farm and Druk White Lotus School.

I have several years of experience working with the National Student Leadership Conference on programs relating to International Diplomacy, Globalization, and helping to create and establish the Journalism & Mass Communication program. From 2009-2011, I directed the program on Journalism & Mass Communication at American University in Washington, DC and Berkeley, California.

With a passion for experimental innovative projects, I was an Oculus Launch Pad grant recipient and member of YouTube’s VR Creators Lab in Los Angeles. I have presented for the Online News Association, SXSW and BinderCon since co-founding Tiny World Productions, an innovative immersive journalism studio.

I have developed curriculum training for journalists in video and immersive storytelling in the U.S., India and around the world. My teaching and reporting has brought me to Hamburg, Germany as a Fulbright Fellow and Berlin as a Arthur F. Burns Fellow with Die Zeit Online.

I am a graduate of Pitzer College in California where I studied Global Communications and Studio Arts. I spent a year in Denmark as a Master’s student in Journalism, Media and Globalization at Aarhus University and I received my Master’s in Journalism from the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism.

    Your topic is on point about saving the artistic soul of the Bay Area. Somehow I survived in the East Bay near Oakland as a young practicing painter teaching part time to support myself during my twenties and thirties. My curse was to love an observational based style when Pop, Funk and Conceptual Art was the fad. But, I hung in there and created my own artistic platform. It is culminating in my second book, Big Sur to Mendocino, Coastal Paintings and Stories with Legends Revealed. For over twenty years I have created a painted pictorial of the California Coast. The works are created on site over time and have an accompanying text. The text centers on Early Pioneers and Artists. The volume contains 114 paintings from this coastal odyssey. If you would like to share any ideas about the Bay Area art scene or find out more about the book please email me at kevinmilligangallery@yahoo.com It is a bit scary to look back because I do not think I could recreate and retrace my footsteps.
