Boylan worked as an International News Editor at Associated Press HQ in New York City, won a Fulbright Fellowship for research in Jakarta, then completed a Journalism Professorship in Shanghai and wrote for The Washington Times.
Across the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia post 9/11, Boylan served as a public affairs advisor to the US Military and other foreign governments. He currently writes essays on politics, literature, language and culture, and recently won acclaim at the Cannes Film Festival for a comedy about terrorism.
