His work appeared in San Francisco Chronicle,[1] Columbia Journalism Review,[2] and Tablet Magazine,[3]

From October 2005 to April 2006, he was a Reuters Foundation Fellow at Oxford University.

Curiel's book Al' America won the 2008 American Book Award. The Washington Post reviewed the work saying,

In the wake of a bruising presidential campaign, Americans of all faiths ought to consider how to strengthen ties to their Arab and Muslim fellow citizens. Curiel's book, though short-sighted in some ways, can play a role in persuading the skeptical that Arab and Muslim traditions are already woven deeply into the American fabric. ·[4]

In the Fall 2009 semester, he taught a journalism course at the University of California, Los Angeles. In February 2010, he taught at Whitman College. In 2011, Curiel joined the staff of the Wikimedia Foundation as Development Communications Manager.[5]

In 2015, Curiel's book Islam in America was published by I.B.Tauris.
