I am a TV news producer particularly interested in international relations, foreign policy, and the swamp that is Washington, D.C.
I currently work as an associate producer on Fox News Channel's The Ingraham Angle with Laura Ingraham. I previously worked on The Next Revolution with Steve Hilton, where I researched, wrote, and produced the 'Swamp Watch' series. Every week, I exposed a different industry, company, or elected official abusing public trust and enriching themselves through corrupt and unethical behavior. If we're going to proverbially "drain the swamp", we must define what it is. Swamp Watch does that, and its popularity is proof that we've tapped into something that's resonating.
My previous shows at FNC/FBN include 'Red Eye with Tom Shillue' and 'Stossel'. I also worked at the CBS News International Desk for over five years.
But I've done other stuff too!
I got my master’s degree in International Relations from NYU's Department of Politics and graduated with distinction from McGill University in 2007.
I served as the director of communications for the American Iranian Council, a non-profit think tank dedicated to analysis of US-Iran relations. I also created and hosted a satirical newscast about the Middle East called 'The Mideast Show'; that was fun and made negative dollars. Once, I even ran a surprisingly popular expatriate Iranian presidential campaign for a Rutgers professor named Hooshang Amirahmadi.
I used to "study" silly improv comedy at the Upright Citizens Brigade, but now I'd rather be playing classical guitar and West Coast Swing dancing.
