He taught a blogging class at New York University until, after a second round of fundraising, he returned to Baghdad in May 2004 and contracted with Time magazine as a correspondent for Iraq until March 2006.

He previously worked for the Associated Press and the New York Daily News covering the Internet, technology and business. He holds a bachelor of arts in journalism from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and a Masters in Science in Journalism from Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism in New York City. He then was based in Beirut, Lebanon, where he reported on the 2006 Israel-Lebanon conflict as well as a range of regional issues.

He was selected as a Knight Fellow at Stanford University, where he spent a year before moving to Pakistan and has been appointed as the Pakistan Bureau Chief for Thomson Reuters.
