historianAs a PhD Candidate at Rice University, I am studying “Nationalism, Religion, and the Impact of Foreign Interventions in Egypt.” I expect to complete my dissertation in 2018.

JournalistSince March 2003, I have been a Producing/Hosting a Houston-based radio show. After hundreds of hours and thousands of interviews on a wide range of topics, the show is now carried by more than a dozen stations in the U.S. and Europe.

PhotographerAs a creative break from my studies and radio work, I am a part time professional photographer. Most of my photography is portraits and events. These three distinct activities provide me with opportunities to learn new things and make new connections.
