Alex Finley is a former officer of the CIA’s Directorate of Operations, where she served in West Africa and Europe.

Her writing has appeared in Slate, Reductress, Funny or Die, Politico, and other publications. The voice behind the viral Twitter feed #YachtWatch, which tracks the movements of Russian oligarch’s yachts, she has spoken to C-SPAN’s Washington Journal, CBC’s The National, Sirius XM’s Yahoo! Politics, The Cipher Brief, the Spy Museum’s SpyCast, and numerous other media outlets.
