Below are selected stories and columns I've written for The Philadelphia Inquirer. After returning from five years of studying and doing humanitarian work, I decided to try find the intersection of my two worlds. The Inquirer has given me the opportunity to do so, first as deputy editorial page editor, then as an editorial writer and periodic columnist. As a reporter, I hope to continue to find connections between humanitarian situations and home to show people similarities bridge the farthest distances and warrant our attention. These stories flow from that personal quest. As you'll see, I have a special interest in the war in northern Uganda, where children were the direct targets as the world looked away for more than two decades.
