Justin Spike

I'm an independent journalist and fixer based in Budapest, Hungary. I came to this country in 2010, the year Viktor Orbán and the Fidesz party were voted into power, and since then, I've observed and covered the subsequent radical changes to Hungary's political and economic life. I was the managing editor of the Budapest Beacon, an independent, English-language news portal dedicated to Hungarian politics and economy, and I run InsightHungary in partnership with local news website 

I specialize in news and feature stories, and have also produced weekly news videos (studio) and done livestream video reports. I also have experience in on-camera presentation, voice work and podcasting, and have done fixing work for multiple international outlets and organizations (Financial Times, France24, Aftenbladet, Heartland TV, Princeton University, etc).
