Ken stumbled upon journalism at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, writing op-ed pieces for an independent student newspaper. He bounced around the country working at newspapers in Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Washington state before moving to the nation’s capital in 2005—and landing at POLITICO.
Ken doesn’t sit behind a desk all day. Instead, he’s often traveling across the country, following presidential candidates on the campaign trail. When he is in the office, Ken confers with media sources over coffee or on the phone. He also sorts through confidential documents and data sources to find new stories to report on and to strengthen those already in the pipeline.
“What I love about POLITICO is that it recognizes and rewards talent and merit—and allows people to really pursue their own initiatives on the job.”
"I would advise people interviewing at POLITICO to bring their own ideas about how they could do something in a unique way. That's something POLITICO really thrives on—the energy and the ideas of the people who work here."
