I currently live and work in New York City freelancing for CNN and on projects related to the Middle East, from consulting news pundits, producing stories, and some legal consulting.

I have studied international affairs in Europe, Arabic in the Middle East, and law in the United States. I have evacuated war in the Middle East, gone to prison for being accused of traitorship in Lebanon (I am a Lebanese citizen and did research in Israel and the government thought I was in the CIA), I have legally resettled Somali refugees out of Egypt through the United Nations, been allowed to formally call out the Sri Lankan government for torture infractions in Geneva with the United Nations Committee Against Torture, and I have also traveled to Oslo with Jimmy Carter's Syria team to consult Syrian politicians, lawyers and judges on which concepts should be in Syria's transitional constitution if they ever get to have one.

I have also produced segments and worked with Fareed Zakaria and produced a series pilot on the Middle East with VICE News. No matter how hard I try to figure out where I am going, though, I can honestly say that I have nothing to offer anyone but my own confusion.

Making any sort of dent in the troubles that afflict the Middle East is a life ambition. Confusion is a collateral result of that.
