My career with NBC began as an intern at the Tel Aviv bureau in September 1998. Over the following years I moved on to several other positions, including assignment desk editor, associate producer, field producer and segment producer. My favorite role, though, was as a freelance correspondent for msnbc.com. I regularly wrote features and human-interest stories from the Middle East. In the years since, I have taken on a number of other freelance projects that have been published in outlets such as The New York Times Magazine, The New York Daily News, The Forward, Tablet, Haaretz, The Times of Israel, The Jerusalem Post, Guilt and Pleasure, Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street Magazine and The Seventh Eye. Since leaving AP in October 2020, I've also started writing commentary columns for various publications.
