I received a Bachelors degree from McGill University and Masters from Johns Hopkins University.

Why tamale.org? I took a trip to Tamale, a town in northern Ghana, in 2005. I learned Ghanaians pronounce the name with the accent on the first syllable, not second. A familiar word spoken differently is fun but also slightly jarring. At first I struggled to restrain myself from correcting people, and then within a few hours I forgot what it was like pronouncing it the way I had my entire life. And since I like tamales. And because the domain was available.

How about a boring disclaimer? Okay, here goes: all content represents my personal views only and not the view of the U.S. government.
