Reared in socially progressive Los Angeles, Drew Gowing rebelled, as was the form, by dropping out of the prestigious University of Southern California after a semester to join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormons) on a full-time two-year missionary assignment in Canada. Upon his return he transferred to Brigham Young University to read philosophy, and summarily earn the distinction Bachelor of Arts.

He began his career as an intern on the Senate Labor and Human Resource Committee in Washington DC, and ultimately cut his teeth in the press rooms on Capitol Hill. Here, public relations and political science combine into the incontrovertible truth that publishing ensures, supports and shapes the world of politics. A candidate for the JD/MPP in Law & Public Policy, he turned from Boston University into Management Consulting whereto advise leaders in business and government around the globe.

During the 2008 election year, three components to his past coincided when the LDS Church collected over $20M to promulgate the State of California’s Proposition 8. Herein Church, State, and Law collided in what is described as the only instance in U.S. history where civil and pre-existing rights were taken away from a specific and targeted minority. And when the invitation came to publish a political exposé the following month, he effectively re-entered the public sector to devote what he calls his ‘second act’ to its service.

Mr. Gowing resides in Charlotte North Carolina with his partner, David Edward Record. Under the shadow of the Hearst empire, he presides over the approach and reporting of politics and style.
