Hello. I’m Brian Leli. I’m an American writer, teacher and photographer. I have a bachelor’s degree in interactive design and a master’s degree in international journalism. In 2014, I self-published a book of stories called There Were These People. You can buy it for $5 from the Kindle store. In 2013, I self-published a book of photos and writings called London and a Year. I did this with a lot of other people’s help and money. I’ve done a lot of journalistic things for a bunch of different publications. I did the ones I’m most proud of for The Morning News, The New Statesman and Gapers Block. I’m from Chicago, Illinois but I live out of rented rooms everywhere. I've lived for extended periods in England and Thailand. Right now, I'm living and teaching English to electronics apprentices in Bogota, Colombia. Email me. Subscribe to my newsletter. Godspeed.
