My experience as a deputy commanding general in Afghanistan and, later, COO for DC schools, give me a unique, balanced and well-informed perspective.
I’m working on a PhD in Government at Georgetown, so I’m full of ideals, but my optimism is tempered by experience.
My resume suggests that I'm black. I’m not. But I’m not afraid to talk about race, either.
I’m a communications professional and journalist known for addressing complex, sometimes unpopular issues in lucid, compelling prose.
I'm a former senior federal policy maker, with a wide-ranging knowledge of issues involving homeland security, national security, intelligence and law enforcement.

I’m a graduate student in International Affairs at Columbia and have spent most of my life roaming the Northeast corridors of both the U.S. and China.
I've taken a passionate approach to understanding issues in my job as a reporter. Now I'd like the opportunity to defend my positions.
