The Other Side of War — An article I just wrote for Medium

I’ve been busy recently and haven’t blogged much, but Medium just published a new story of mine, detailing how I learned Persian to be a spy, never used it in the military, and found myself using it to help refugees from the countries I had trained to spy on.

An editor approached me around a month ago and asked me to pitch a story about refugee work. I’ve never pitched articles before and haven’t done any professional writing since leaving The Tucson Weekly a few years ago, but apparently the pitch worked and things went smoothly.

The story can be found here, please check it out and let me know what you think.
