About Me


Learning Arab County Survival Skills


I came to Egypt as a lowly intern and somehow managed to rise to the ranks of editor.

I specialize in turning awkward silences into awkward conversations. I'm good at climbing, eating quickly and copy-editing.


learning new languages & then immediately forgetting them, manic gesturing at shopkeepers, fruit stands and street cats.
