I’m a writer specializing in politics, media and Middle East affairs. I’ve covered Congress for the Boston Globe, written for the editorial board and metro desk at Newsday and reported on Detroit for the Guardian. My work has also appeared in the Chicago Tribune and Washington Post.
I currently split time between the Columbia Journalism School, where I’m a Master of Arts candidate in political journalism, and amNewYork, where I report and edit New York news. As Columbia’s Gray Fellow for International Reporting, my coursework this year has focused on post-9/11 military strategy, Third World security policy and U.S. foreign policy in the Persian Gulf. After graduation in May, I’ll continue my Arabic language studies through the Gray Fellowship’s generous language grant.
I hold Bachelor of Science degrees in Journalism and Middle East Studies from Northwestern University.
Along with journalism and international affairs, I love baseball, TV dramas and hip-hop. Feel free to email me at Uberti[dot]David[at]gmail.com or follow me on Twitter. I blog about Detroit, foreign policy and the media here.
