Hi, I’m Arikia

Arikia Millikan, journalist

I’m an American journalist living in Berlin. I studied biomedical engineering and psychology, so it’s only natural that my journalistic work focuses on the intersection of technology and the human mind. My journalistic training taught me to ask the right questions and seek answers from direct sources to uncover what lies beyond the surface of the apparent. I thrive while scrutinizing complexity and unblocking communication sticking points that occur when specialists are tasked with conveying information to a general audience. My client roster includes founders and thought leaders from fields such as biotechnology, venture capital, telemedicine, teletherapy, femtech, cybersecurity, and mixed reality media. I currently live in Berlin, Germany and have traveled to 40 countries. I favor clients who are interested in locating the root causes of their editorial production problems and are willing to take steps to adjust organizational misalignments in order to achieve higher levels of editorial quality and output.
