I'm a radio journalist from California.

I have worked for APM’s Marketplace, PRI’s The World, NPR News, and BBC News.

I spent two years  reporting in Egypt – one year before the revolution, one year after. I've also reported from Tunisia and Kenya. In 2010-2011 I was a Henry Luce Scholar based in Indonesia where I was an editor, producer and guest host of a weekly radio news show called "Asia Calling".

I recently received a Fulbright Research Grant to study the oil and gas sector in Nigeria.

I speak Egyptian Arabic, Indonesian, and Spanish. I'm working on my French and Swahili.

I love economics, soccer, hiking, and old Hollywood detective movies.
