Hesh Kestin



An honors graduate of the Brooklyn streets, where he grew up across from the former headquarters of Murder Inc., Hesh Kestin reported on war and civil mayhem in the Mideast, Europe and Africa, and as European correspondent for Forbes on global terrorism and its nastier counterpart, global business.

Cited by MediaGuide for best foreign correspondence, his work has appeared in publications as diverse as Newsday, The Jerusalem Post, Inc. and Playboy. After hanging up his trenchcoat Kestin founded two prize-winning newspapers, the independent Israeli daily The Nation and The American, a weekly for expatriates.
