What is The Urban Times?

It is a social publishing platform built for the journalists, bloggers and thought-leaders who want to create insightful content, build a stellar reputation and drive change. It receives over half a million visitors per month!

Alex is the Editor and Founder – he is constantly thinking about the issues that shape the world, as well as the overlooked solutions might just save it. He heads up the content team, is responsible for expanding UT’s network of writers, thought-leaders and media partners, and is passionate about sustainable business development. When he’s not working, reading sci-fi, or obsessively watching movies, he’ll be out making friends who want to change the world too.

Good luck!
