JESSE A. HAMILTON

A native of Portland, Ore., and educated at
Western Washington University's journalism
school, Jesse started his reporting career in
Washington state, where he worked at three
mid-sized dailies. In addition to several murder
trials, a fatal forest fire, the grisly work of a
serial killer and an airplane tragedy, he covered
tribal issues, including a controversial whale
hunt conducted by the Makah tribe. In 2002, he
joined the staff of the Hartford Courant, the
nation's oldest continuously published
newspaper. There, he covered the military,
including a stint in Fallujah, Iraq, writing about
the Marines. He was hired as the paper's
Washington D.C. bureau chief, covering the
2008 presidential election and the inauguration
of Barack Obama.

Jesse was then
Washington Bureau Manager
for A.M. Best, a financial news operation, also
doing work as a freelance writer and
photographer for magazines (such as National
Journal and Connecticut Magazine),
newspapers, nonprofits,
websites, journals and
books. He is now a reporter for Bloomberg
News, covering the U.S. Securities and
Exchange Commission in Bloomberg's
Washington bureau.

When he's not working, Jesse is an enthusiastic
traveler. He scuba dives, explores trails on his
mountain bike, skis, camps, practices his
photography and, of course, he writes. He lives
in the D.C. area with his wife, Audrey.
