I am a freelance journalist based out of the Middle East. Previously, I served as the primary congressional reporter for Federal Computer Week where I covered the Department of Veteran Affairs, State Department, and Homeland Security.
Prior to that, I covered foreign policy as a Capitol Hill reporter for CQ Roll Call and as a correspondent for Thomson Reuters based in Pakistan. During my time at Reuters, I covered mass protests, interviewed well-known personalities, and reported on breaking news from conflict zones.
I have also worked as a multi-media journalist at the CBS affiliate TV station in Washington, D.C.. My work has appeared in USA Today, the New York Times, and others.
I was born and raised in Lahore, Pakistan. Once I moved to the United States, I earned my Bachelors in Marketing from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I later earned my Masters in Public Affairs and Journalism from the American University in Washington, D.C.
