Artyom Vorobey was born in the town of Miass, Chelyabinsk Region. He gained his first experience in journalism as a reporter for a youth newspaper in his hometown. When the newspaper launched a program on a local TV channel, Artyom took an active part in the new project. It was then that he realized that he wanted to build a career as a TV journalist. After graduating from the Ural State University in Ekaterinburg, he worked as a reporter, editor, and presenter for several Ural-based broadcasters (Vesti-Ural, Studio-41 and Channel 4).
In 2008 he joined the RT Documentary department as a correspondent. During his time with RTD, he has worked on several dozen projects, most notably ‘I Want My Sex Back’, ‘She is My Son’, ‘Dance, Sex, Dance’, ‘US and the Wall’, and ‘Wombs for Rent’.
“The most important upside of my job is about gaining unique experiences that other people have no access to, visiting places, and witnessing events that I would have never visited or witnessed otherwise. And, the most important thing, it’s also about sharing my view of the places and events with other people by means of documentaries”.
