Neil Warner is one of the old-timers at PFW, having worked more than 30 years at the company. He has fond memories of working with three men who helped transform PFW into a company that has been able to survive for more than 40 years but who, sadly, are no longer with us — founder and publisher Art Arkush, former managing editor Bob Drazkowski and renowned draft analyst Joel Buchsbaum. Neil’s primary areas of concentration at PFW are coordinating the content on PFW’s Web site and editing copy for the print edition and the Web. He loves words and tends to be old-school when it comes to grammar and punctuation. Neil got his start in journalism as a stringer for a daily newspaper while in high school, and he earned a B.S. degree in journalism from Northern Illinois University. His first job after graduation was a brief stint at PFW in 1969 that was cut short by a draft notice. After four years in the U.S. Air Force, he had various freelance jobs, including publicity for a midget auto racing organization, before eventually finding his way back to PFW. Neil is married, with no children, and he and his wife particularly enjoy traveling, attending plays and sampling food from all of the world’s cuisines.
