Adam Aton's Profile

Adam covers the Missouri General Assembly for the Columbia Missourian and the Jefferson City News-Tribune. He worked as one of the Missourian's assistant city editors in 2014, and in 2013 he covered Columbia's city government.

His work has also been published by New Europe, Global Journalist, the East-West Center and the Forsyth Herald.

As a reporter, he has written about artists, city planners, tree hunters, airplane mechanics, diplomats, world champion barbecue chefs, oral history scholars, anarchists, homeless veterans, lawyers and high school teachers — but he still feels weird writing about himself.
