I'm a reporter based in Tel Aviv, where I write mostly for The Times and The Economist.
My work from the region has been published in a number of other newspapers and magazines, including Foreign Policy, Foreign Affairs, The Atlantic, Politico, New York, GlobalPost, The National, PRI, the San Francisco Chronicle, World Politics Review, Columbia Journalism Review, MERIP and elsewhere.
I've also appeared on TV and radio networks including the BBC, CNN, TRT, Sky News and Al Jazeera English.
Previously I was based in Cairo, and also worked for 3.5 years as a Doha-based online journalist with Al Jazeera English, where I reported from the Egyptian revolution and the uprising in Bahrain, and covered stories in more than a half-dozen countries, including Iraq, South Sudan, Lebanon, Jordan, and Turkey.
Before that, I worked in Washington as a reporter for Gannett, where I covered homeland security, financial regulation and a range of other topics.
I graduated from Northwestern University in 2007 with a bachelor's degree in journalism, and spent time in 2006 studying at the American University in Cairo.
