I'm a journalist and editor based in NYC. Formerly I was based in Kathmandu, Nepal.
I mostly write on history, politics and culture in South Asia. Some of my work is listed here.
I've published in The Caravan, Outside magazine, CityLab and Himal Southasian, among other places. My piece on carvers rebuilding Kathmandu's destroyed temples won the South Asian Journalists Association (SAJA) "Outstanding Arts & Culture Reporting on South Asia" award.
I graduated from Harvard, where I studied Government and English Literature.
