HI. I'M JULIA SIMON.

I am a radio journalist. I am an investigative business reporter, and I focus on the global oil and gas sector.

I have worked for NPR News, BBC News, APM’s Marketplace and PRI’s The World. 

I spent two years  as a reporter in Egypt – one year before the revolution, one year after. I spent over a year reporting in Indonesia and I spent this past year reporting in Nigeria.

I speak Egyptian Arabic, Indonesian, Spanish, and conversational French. 

I love petroleum economics, salsa dancing and old Hollywood detective movies.
