I love to tell stories. From my work as a journalist, think tanker, military intelligence analyst, and social media personality, to my work as a communications consultant for non-profit organizations and advocacy groups, I thrive on using language to explain the world around us — in all its complicated, wonderful, messy, beautiful glory.
While I used to exclusively cover national security, I’ve expanded my focus — yes, politics, still, but also LGBT equality, fiction books, the odd film, technology policy, and why colonizing Mars is such a bad idea (yes, really). You can find them on this site using the menu above.
That’s me in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. It is quite an interesting place. Maybe some day, I can tell some stories about that place, too. In the meantime I am enjoying life in the most opposite place to Cuba I can think of: the Rockies.
