For 3+ years, I have been the Americas aviation reporter at Janes, where I cover mostly Pentagon aircraft platforms but also write about space from time to time. I have been at Jane's for just over three years. I spent 5.5 years covering US Air Force programs and commercial and civil space at Defense Daily. Prior to that I was a web producer at insidedefense.com. My first job in my journalism career was as a sports reporter for the Elkhart Truth newspaper in Elkhart, Indiana.
