“Ned is intelligent, sensitive and dedicated. Ever since he was a child, he has had a deep love for airplanes, which he has combined with his career as an airline business journalist. Besides aviation, he also is a public transit aficionado, which he writes about in his spare time. I’m always amazed about his endless knowledge about planes, trains, and buses. He loves taking our nieces on the trolley and plane spotting when we visit them, and is excited to share these experiences with our child.

Originally from Virginia, Ned grew up in California and upstate New York, where his passion for running formed and continues to this day. He is always organizing runs with our friends and encouraging me to run with him. He enjoys planning out routes and his unending enthusiasm always amazes and motivates me to join him on a run. I know that he can’t wait to use a running stroller in the future.

Ned is devoted to our family, which I admire, as he is always willing to go above and beyond for us. His dedication has brought him back to school to learn American Sign Language (ASL) to communicate with my mother, which means a great deal. I know he will parent a child with the same devotion to family.”
