I am an American freelance writer based in Boston. I have been working in the Middle East since 2004 and lived there for seven years. I hold a graduate degree in Middle Eastern Studies from Harvard University. My publications center around arts and culture from the Middle East and far beyond its borders (most recently, New England).

Previously, I worked in the humanitarian development field directing international NGOs in refugee camps, townships, overcrowded schools and public hospitals in the Middle East and Africa. I am equally comfortable in an LBD covering a Christie’s auction as I am sitting cross-legged on the floor of a temporary shelter made from corrugated tin, deep in a refugee camp.

My writing has appeared in Architectural Digest, The Art Newspaper, Artsy, ARTnews, VOGUE (Arabia), L’Officiel USA, The National, McSweeney’s and elsewhere.
