Nicaragua, 2012

Hello.  I'm a senior video journalist for BBC News based in the Washington, DC bureau. 

Previously I worked as a freelance video journalist in Cairo, Egypt - which included extensive coverage of the Arab Spring in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya.

Earlier I was a video journalist for The National newspaper’s television program in Abu Dhabi.  I also wrote a veterans affairs blog called Soldier’s Home for Newsweek.

I am a Marine veteran of Iraq and I attended the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.

I've either produced video or written for: The New York Times, BBC News, Newsweek, Wall Street Journal, TIME magazine, Boston Globe, Village Voice, CNBC, Reuters, and the PBS NewsHour.

An essay I wrote for the New York Times about Iraq was anthologized in New York Stories: The Best of the City Section of the New York Times.
