I'm a writer and journalist based in New York City.

My writing and policy analysis has covered U.S. foreign policy, climate and energy, European politics, and arts and culture. I'm currently a senior editor for the Council on Foreign Relations. My freelance writing has appeared in Washington Monthly, Brookings, and elsewhere. I've also helped clients develop their voice.

A graduate of Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service, I've lived and studied in Chile, Egypt, India, China, South Korea, and Bangladesh.

And when I'm not writing, I'm a little obsessed with catching the next wave.
