Gennady Kolker is the web & media relations associate at Demos: Ideas & Action, a think tank based in New York City. He supports a wide range of media relations and online engagement efforts, including coordination of several key elements of the Demos Books Project. Gennady also serves as content editor for Demos.org and affiliated Demos websites.
Prior to working at Demos, Gennady held internships in Demos' Economic Opportunity Program as well as at the Brennan Center for Justice, and in the office of then Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton. He graduated from New York University (NYU) Magna Cum Laude with a degree in political science, and concentrations in economics, media and legal studies.
Gennady was born in the former Soviet Union, in what is now Ukraine, but grew up in the U.S. His past, including a long and tumultuous journey to the U.S., instilled in him a profound appreciation for history, and public policy in particular.
In his spare time, Gennady likes to dabble in technology and new media, and prefers to stay well informed. He closely follows current events, and is an avid reader with particular interests in news magazines, nonfiction and dystopian political satires. Gennady is also a devoted film aficionado, enjoys playing the guitar, and occasionally does a little backpacking.
