I'm a freelance print journalist and author of the memoir, Don't Be Afraid of the Bullets: An Accidental War Correspondent in Yemen (Arcade Oct14), about my time reporting for the New York Times from Yemen. Since leaving Sanaa in 2012, I've reported feature, investigative stories on the trade of foreign domestic workers in the Middle East, traumas faced by women in the US military and former Yemen President Ali Abdullah Saleh's relationship with Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. I've written for Harper's, the Nation, Washington Monthly, GOOD magazine, Newsweek, Foreign Policy, Guernica, the Christian Science Monitor and others, from Egypt, Yemen, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Spain and back home, in the US. My work has been supported by the Fund for Investigative Journalism, the International Center for Journalists and the International Reporting Project. I'm currently based in Berlin and available for assignments.
