Jay Nichvolodov is the Assistant Editor for Globetrotter Magazine. Based in Jakarta, Jay has recently joined the Globetrotter team after having been a teacher in several countries for the past half decade. Prior to that, he had his hands in International Education at the Universitas Espiritu Santo in Guayaquil, Ecuador. He has called places like Ecuador, Korea and Vietnam home, and has most recently sunk his teeth into the congested, whimsical megalopolis of Jakarta. Jay writes, photographs, and feels most in his element when he is well off the beaten track, lost in the mountains in Guatemala, or meandering narrow treets in Tokyo. Also, all of the street food.
