Welcome! I’m an American political scientist, foreign policy wonk, and author specializing in Asian security and the politics of US foreign policy. I served in the Pentagon during the Obama administration, and have been trying to speak truth to power ever since. I’ve written a couple books with Cambridge University Press, and directed a documentary about the North Korean nuclear crisis and its aftermath. I write and perform for the public, for policymaking elites, and for my academic peers (all at the same time when possible). If you want to hear me sound off, about all things foreign policy, I host The Un-Diplomatic Podcast (just click the button to the right cleverly labeled “Un-Diplomatic Podcast,” or listen directly below).
