On Development I: Relationships and the Long View Keys to Success

As more and more nations demand and attempt to enjoy the benefits of today’s globalized economy and community, international development is a field which will only grow larger and become more difficult to understand.

Profile Information

Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
Ready and eager to take on a full-time position in international affairs, international development, humanitarian aid/relief, government, writing, journalism, research or consulting.

As an undergraduate, I engaged in a double major in Politics and History. My main abroad experience in college was in Japan, with more minor experiences in Cuba and Europe. One summer alone during my college years I held an internship at the Massachusetts State House with a state senator and two other jobs as well. Upon graduation, I volunteered for several political campaigns in Boston, including the 2004 DNC, where a chance meeting with Senator Biden and his Chief-of-Staff eventually led to an internship in the Senator's DC office two years later. After doing substantive work in the U.S. Senate while just an intern, and after some time in the private sector, I began my graduate studies at George Mason University's School of Public Policy. While also working part-time, I completed my degree, a process which included my studying abroad in Liberia, evaluating the United Nations Mission in Liberia, and also included studying abroad in Israel and the West Bank, examining the conflict there. After a temporary research position with Edelman, the world's largest PR firm, I moved to Amman, Jordan, where I am currently freelancing and am looking for a more permanent career position.

Specialties: Writing and research with an emphasis on problem-solving and providing workable, real-world solutions and applicable lessons. Areas of focus include public policy, foreign policy, peacekeeping, peacebuilding, peacemaking, conflict mitigation/analysis/resolution, development, humanitarian intervention, complex operations, inter/intragovernmental/IO/NGO working relationships, private/public partnerships, conducting and applying historical case studies, public speaking/presentations
