I am a recovering Washington young professional currently working in Kabul, Afghanistan.
I’m the former executive director of the Foundation for Afghanistan and assistant editor at Iran Times. Currently, I write for the UN Foundation’s UN Dispatch, contribute to the Soufan Gourp’s IntelBriefs series and maintain this blog. Occasionally, I also blog on the Huffington Post.
I’ve also been on TV and radio, and have been quoted in the papers a few times. Here are some instances that I have tracked.
I was born in Afghanistan and have lived a big part of my life in Pakistan. My writings primarily deal with development, security, nation-building, policy, democratization, the media and issues pertaining to Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iran.
