A walk with Alex Bell

I won’t even be diplomatic about this. Alex Bell is one of my favorite humans. She’s from the south. She’s smart as hell. And she doesn’t mince words.

Alex is the Senior Policy Director at the Center for Arms Control & Non-Proliferation, where she focuses on national security issues in Congress, nuclear arms control, foreign policy, Pentagon spending, and other areas of peace and security.

Before that, she was the Director for Strategic Outreach in the Office of the Under Secretary for Arms Control and International Security at the Department of State. Oh, and a Peace Corps Volunteer in southwest Jamaica.

She’s a Truman National Security Fellow, a Council on Foreign Relations Term Member, a 2017 Munich Security Conference Young Leader, a member of the Project on Nuclear Issues Mid-Career Cadre and a member of the Younger Generation Leaders Network on Euro-Atlantic Security.

Blah, blah, blah. She’s pretty damn great. She’s also an incredible artist.

And if you don’t already know who she is, I promise you’re in for a treat. Give her interview a read, below. And for an added bonus, tune in to hear her talk diplomacy on the very first episode of Things That Go Boom¬†from PRI and Inkstick Media!
