Flashback to Clemens on Capitol Hill
Roger Clemens has been indicted, deservedly, for lying in his testimony before Congress on February 13, 2008. This is the only time I have been inside the Capitol, as I attended after writing a story for Kiplinger about how steroids had been good for baseball's bottom line, while the game lost its innocence in the process. That's me in the back, right in front of the cameraman in green and behind the hand of Charles P. Scheeler, the guy testifying in between Clemens and Brian McNamee, in this New York Times photo.
I'm a 30 year old writer, researcher and analyst born and raised in the DC area who has also lived in Maine, London, Berlin, Hamburg, upstate New York, Bologna and Brussels. I graduated from Bowdoin College in 2005 and Johns Hopkins University's Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies in 2010. My writing has been published by the Bowdoin Orient, the International Herald Tribune, the Annapolis Capitol, the Saratogian, Kiplinger, the Washington Post, the Center for European Policy Analysis, the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, and Aspenia Online; I have also worked in a more research/editorial capacity for the Transatlantic Academy, the German Marshall Fund of the United States, and New York University's Center on International Cooperation.
