Nathan Poffenberger

A devout student of counterterrorism, Nathan’s areas of interest lie in South and Southeast Asia, where he was raised. His studies have included governmental missteps during the Nepalese Civil War, the underground economy of West Africa and forecasting radicalization trends in Indonesia. A graduate of the University of California, Santa Barbara, and a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, Nathan has spent significant time studying Spanish and Bahasa Indonesia. When he isn’t chained to a desk, Nate feels most at home on the beach, under the water, or lost in the woods.
