I am an editor and writer at The Washington Monthly. Previously, as a freelance reporter in the Middle East and the Caucasus, I wrote for the Los Angeles Times, The Atlantic, The New Republic, Foreign Policy online, New York Times’ Latitude Blog, and other publications.
I lived in, and reported from, Yemen on and off from 2009 to the spring 2011, thanks in part to a grant from the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting and the Overseas Press Club Fellowship. I also recently lived in Tbilisi, Georgia, where I drove a Lada Niva that, despite its stench, I still miss daily. I studied philosophy and history at Yale and journalism at Columbia. I live in D.C.
