I am an award-winning journalist and former diplomat who still believes in the power of journalism to improve the world. I was a finalist in 2008 for The Religion Newswriters Association Templeton Reporter of the Year Award, and in 2007 placed third in the American Academy of Religion news writing contest. Most recently, I graduated from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, where I came to augment my professional experience with an academic foundation that includes economics, statistics, international relations, and civil society. I now aim to put my old and new skills to use writing about important issues for publications big and small. Many of my stories and more information about me can be found at
