I study international security. I've spent some time spent in Kazakhstan, and retained an obsession about the region. In addition to English, I speak French, and I am learning Russian at an abysmal pace when I’m not consumed with my day job.
I currently live in or around Washington, DC. In 2006 I was named, among others, Time Magazine’s Person of the Year.
I also blog at Registan.net, a blog devoted to Central Asia and the Caucasus.
