I have done recent commentary for the New York Times and Guardian related to the role of Dennis Rodman as a very unlikely ‘diplomatic’ actor.  I also received attention from a presentation I did at The Chicago Council on Global Affairs on March 4, 2013 with Chicago Bears lineman Israel Idonije.

I continue to do a wide variety of media appearances – both on themes relevant to global buzz and diplomatic bite. My work has been profiled via ABC Good Morning America, The Independent, The Guardian, Times of India, China Daily, CBC’s Q, Variety Magazine, and the Washington Diplomat. I have done interviews on the G20, the BRICS, Canadian foreign policy, and celebrity activism in a wide number of media outlets as listed below.
