Matt Kauffman in Jordan

About Matt Kauffman

leave a comment »

I’m a freelance journalist living in Amman, Jordan. The Middle East is a place whose stark beauty and dense history has fascinated me since I was a boy. My first foray here only left me wanting more. While I’ve been here, I’ve reported on and photographed Amman’s hip hop scene and Syrian refugees in the Kingdom. As a graduate student at Northeastern University in Boston, I interned at GateHouse media, writing articles for various local weeklies such as the West Roxbury Transcript and the Brookline Tab. Aside from learning the language and reporting, I also plan to eat my body weight in mansaf, shawarma, falafel and all other manner of Jordanian/Middle Eastern food.
