Welcome to my blog!
I’m a full-time corporate attorney in Washington, DC, specializing especially in private equity and securities regulations. But I’m also a part-time commentator on comparative and world politics — a subject about which I’ve been passionate all my life, and I’ve written pieces for The Atlantic, The New Republic, EUobserver.com, The National Interest and Deutsche Welle.
I’m a graduate of Duke University and the New York University School of Law, and I have studied at the European University Institute.
I’m also an avid traveller — the past 18 months have taken me to Rome, Trinidad and Tobago, Kentucky, Miami, Shanghai, Beijing, Qinghai province, the Mississippi Delta, Alaska, the Gulf Coast, Oaxaca, Toronto, northern Ethiopia and Caracas.
One of the key delights of my life both professionally and personally is learning about the world, and Suffragio, I hope, provides a window into the way that different countries use politics as a means of solving conflicts — regardless of their divergent cultures, histories and economics. I’m delighted to note that Suffragio has won ‘Honorable Mention’ as runner-up for 2013′s ‘Most Promising New Blog’ in the 2013 Online Achievement in International Studies awards.
