About

Over the past several years, I’ve written about US foreign policy/national security, Latin America, and the politics of the Middle East. Head over to Published Work to find links to some of my pieces, which have appeared in The New Republic, Muftah, Alternet, and others.

While based in Medellin, Colombia, in 2014, I wrote and reported regularly for Colombia Reports and Latin Correspondent before moving to Washington, D.C.

I am now based in Helsinki, where I am studying for a master’s degree in religion and conflict. More generally, I am interested in the relationship between religion and politics in a secular age. I hope to do more research exploring left political theology within a Reformational framework.

Before getting into journalism, I studied religion and philosophy at the University of Colorado and was a Peace Corps volunteer in Armenia (2010-2012).
