About Me

This website features my writings on Middle East political issues.

It’s based on a combination of practical observations from a decade spent working in the region, closely reading the Arabic language source material, plus an MA in International Security from Georgetown University.

Some of those experiences include several years as a volunteer English Teacher at St. Andrew’s Refugee Ministry in Cairo, Egypt:


I also spent a couple of years in Saudi Arabia as part of the management team for the UN-sponsored $1 Billion Gulf War environmental remediation program:

More recently, I spent 5 years building up and then selling a company called Industry Arabic that provided translation services to 300+ companies and government agencies throughout this region. Read an article about that here.
