Ben Arnoldy is managing editor of Monitor Frontier Markets. Ben recently spent several years based in New Delhi covering India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan for the Monitor. He has held a wide variety of other posts during his 12 years at the Monitor: some international editing, some reporting from around the American West, and some slinging of HTML in the early days of csmonitor.com.
During the 2003 invasion of Iraq, he became perhaps the first online journalist to embed with the military. His journalism work has been recognized by the Online News Association and the Sidney Hillman Foundation.
Ben graduated from Georgetown University with a BA in English and a minor in Computer Science. He has taught journalism at the 9.9 School of Convergence in New Delhi.
For the past half dozen years or so, Ben has produced a weekly sudoku for the Monitor, but he still awaits "puzzle master" to be added to his official title.
