In the spring 2012 semester, Wells was a Reynolds Visiting Professor and taught two business journalism classes under a program sponsored by The Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism and the University of South Carolina.

He was deputy bureau chief of the Dow Jones Newswires/Wall Street Journal Washington bureau until November 2011, where he organized and edited real-time news coverage in the nation's capital.

Wells also had managed the 22-person Newswires Washington bureau since December 2006. He joined Dow Jones Newswires in May 2002 as deputy bureau chief, where he covered tax policy, oversaw election coverage and assisted in running the news bureau.

Beginning in 2010, Wells served as an adjunct professor at the Phillip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland, where he taught a reporting class. He is teaching a reporting class at College Park this fall.

Before coming to Dow Jones, Wells covered tax and banking policy for Bloomberg Business News for nearly four years. He also worked for more than 11 years as a reporter for the Associated Press, in Carson City, Nev.; Fresno, Calif.; Pikeville, Ky.; New York City; and Washington, D.C.

Wells earned a bachelor’s degree in government with a minor in English from California State University, Sacramento, in 1984. He is pursuing his graduate studies in the Great Books at St. John's College in Annapolis. A marathon runner and jazz bass student, Wells lives in Crownsville with his wife, Deborah St. Coeur, where they maintain a substantial jazz and blues music library.
