Andrew Butters's picture


As the former Beirut Bureau Chief and Middle East correspondent for Time magazine, Andrew Lee Butters spent about a decade covering every major conflict and country in the region from the war in Iraq to the Arab Spring. He’s also worked for the Economist magazine and Bloomberg News in New York, his native city. He’s taught writing at Brown University as an undergraduate peer tutor, to Arab journalists at an English-language magazine in Damascus, Syria, and to journalism graduate students at the Arthur J. Carter Institute at New York University. He was also a journalist fellow at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at the University of Oxford.  He is very proud of his two fierce and funny Iranian-American daughters.
