Prior to National Journal, he worked for Washington Technology, Defense News and Government Computer News. His first media work in 1984 was as archivist, photo-developer, writer and editor for "Strategy and Defence." At age 18, he used a 84mm Carl-Gustav anti-tank shell as a prop in high-school debates. No teacher objected to the display of the shell in the classrooms. The shell was a tasteful shade of blue.
