In recent years, I've taken on a number of 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 analysis and commentary columns for various publications. Back in 1998, I started as an intern, assignment desk editor, associate producer, field producer and segment producer at NBC. My favorite role, though, was as a freelance correspondent for, where I regularly wrote features and human-interest stories from the Middle East, and where I kicked off my journalistic writing career.
