I am a writer and the Editorial Director at Georgetown University's Center for Contemporary Arab Studies. I teach graduate-level writing courses at Georgetown and lead workshops on a variety of writing and publishing topics. My articles and essays have appeared in The Atlantic, Smithsonian Magazine, Slate, American Scholar, US News & World Report, Huffington Post, Washington Post Magazine, Philadelphia Inquirer, Sport in American History, Al-Fanar Media, Washingtonian, International Educator, GOOD Magazine, and Mobile Bay Monthly, as well as in several literary journals and anthologies. I hold an MA in Nonfiction Writing from Johns Hopkins University and an MA in Sociology from the University of South Alabama.
I am currently working on a book on the history of aquatic performance and women's swimming. Check out my latest research and writing on the subject!
