All views expressed here are my own. I do not speak for the federal government or the U.S. Department of State.
I currently work in Washington D.C.
I have an MPP from the Harvard Kennedy School and a B.A. from Barnard College, where I spent inordinate amounts of time working as a city reporter and deputy news editor at the Columbia Daily Spectator.
In between college and graduate school, I spent three-and-a-half years covering climate change for BNA Daily Environment Report and World Climate Change Report in Washington D.C.
I have also worked as a reporting intern for the now-defunct New York Sun, the Washington bureau of The Chicago Tribune, and the Jerusalem Post. My work has also appeared in the New York Times and the L.A. Times.
I now work for the federal government.
This started as a blog devoted to the reading assignments for the John F. Kennedy School of Government Fall 2011 class, Media, Politics, and Power. I am still trying to figure out exactly what it will be next. (The first post that was written after the class ended is “The Journalist and the Activist”).
