I'm a young reporter who recently returned from a stint in Cambodia. Inveterate international traveler, frequent blogger, thrives on a regular diet of snark. Enjoys eating things and reporting back to others. Cynic, but tries to be somewhat pleasant about it. Interested in human rights, international affairs, Southeast Asia politics and international development, especially in the ICT arena. Enjoys photograpy. Nerd. Currently hanging my hat in Washington DC.
