I'm a freelance journalist currently based in Washington, DC. Among other places, I've worked in Yemen, Spain, Rwanda and Russia covering everything from Al-Qaeda to youth issues and the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi. I hold a B.A. in International Politics and Economics from Middlebury College, and I am proficient in Arabic. 

My work has appeared with The Washington PostThe Economist, TIME, Foreign Policy, and the BBC, among other outlets. I’ve also produced videos for PBS, Human Rights Watch, as well as worked with the BBC World Service and Vermont Public Radio.

I have also been awarded grants/fellowships from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and GroundTruth. For the latter, I was a co-winner of a regional Edward R. Murrow award. 

Feel free to get in touch via the contact page, which I try to keep current.
