About Me

Born in the Midwest, I split my childhood between Paris and Washington, D.C. before attending the University of Chicago, where I graduated with a degree in political science. I currently live in London, where I’ve worked for The Associated Press since 2006.

Current areas of interest include cybersecurity, espionage, biometrics, civil liberty, corruption, tax evasion, money laundering, theft, fraud, and terrorism.

You are welcome to contact me via any of the social media above. However for messages of a professional nature please use my work email, which consists of the first letter of my first name, followed by the six letters of my last name, followed by @ap.org. Messages to this address can be protected with PGP, an encryption program. My public key¬†can be found on a public key server. Although encryption may not defeat a determined attacker, it can baffle more routine forms of eavesdropping. Here’s a guide to installing PGP.

If your message is of a personal nature, please contact me at my personal email, which consists of the first letter of my first name, followed by @phae.li. Messages to this address can also be protected with PGP. The public key can be found here. Please note that this mailbox is not checked regularly.

I use a wide variety of encrypted messaging programs, including Pidgin, CryptoCat, Silent Circle, and Signal. Please contact me, preferably in a PGP-protected email, for further detail.

I remain reachable by postal mail. Please send documents, or, better yet, a memory stick encrypted against my public key, care of Raphael Satter at:
