    Write analytical pieces that add depth to current news stories.

    Past stories have focused on trends like Indonesian youths hanging out at 7-Eleven, religious conflict and cultural changes taking place in one of the world's fastest-growing economies.
  • Freelance

  • Voice of America

Story
Tagline
Roving reporter covering Southeast Asia. Always on the hunt for adventure.
Introduction
I'm a contributing reporter for the International Herald Tribune, Christian Science Monitor and Voice of America, among others. Currently based in Jakarta, Indonesia, I've been reporting from Southeast Asia since 2003.
Bragging rights
Have worked with the Princess of Cambodia, survived a downpour of sardines on rough seas in the Philippines and (against my better judgement) ascended an erupting volcano just to get a story.
