Elwood is a stickler for the details. Complex issues demand careful review, and as a former reporter and editor covering Alaska business and politics, it’s a trait that helped him gain credibility and respect amongst the state’s most influential public and private sector leaders.
A decade spent in Alaska media circles provided Elwood valuable insight into what certain outlets and reporters will cover, and most importantly, who will tell the right story. Those years of turning out everything from in-depth investigative pieces to short news briefs and lighter feature stories also made Elwood an extremely adaptable writer. He can blend a message and narrative in a way that piques readers’ interests and provides them with information they didn’t know they needed.
Elwood holds a journalism degree from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. If he’s not at his desk, check the nearest river; he’s the guy holding the fish.
