He joined the bureau in 2008 from The Wall Street Journal, where he was an editor on the global copy desk in South Brunswick, N.J. The Journal rarely kept Curtis in one place, sending him to the news desks in New York, Washington, Brussels and Hong Kong to edit business news, international news and political news.
Curtis was a Dow Jones Newspaper Fund intern at the Indianapolis Star and subsequently helped create INtake, a weekly lifestyle magazine published by the Star.
Curtis, a Kentucky native, is a graduate of the journalism school at the University of Kentucky. He enjoys reading about railroad history and operations and travels by train whenever, and wherever, he can.
