My name is Jamie Lang and I am a journalist working for Variety, focusing primarily in European and Latin American cinema, TV and digital platforms, but I also cover video games, virtual reality and other forms of new media. I have been working for Variety for nearly two years, and write creatively in my free time. I also help to run an archaeological field school each July on the Spanish island of Mallorca. Before working for Variety I taught English at a primary school in Madrid and gave private lessons to a number of students. I also assistant taught university level chemistry. I am a University of Wisconsin Madison graduate (Go Badgers!) with a degree in anthropology, and certificates (minors) in archaeology, religious studies and global studies. I am a native English speaker, but am also fluent in Spanish.
