 The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

As Features Editor, I oversaw a staff of over 30 people that produced 27 different print sections. Much of the job was driven by the conception of engaging, topical lifestyle articles with a creative and dynamic display in print and online. Click here to see samples of some buzzy section fronts.



I started out as a copy editor and later held positions as the top editor of both the Sunday business section and LI Life, a weekly "magazine."  Was on the team that launched, serving as the site's editor for two years. As editor at large, I developed database-driven projects, including one with reported profiles of the 500+ Long Island victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.  

Corpus Christi Caller-Times


My career began as a copy editor on the night desk, where I helped produce the news section. When not on deadline I helped redesign Page 2, the business and stock pages and the comics page. At the end of my tenure there, I was the Sunday Editor, responsible for the A-section news stories and think pieces. In 1989, I was the recipient of the John Murphy Award, the state's top commendation for copy editors.
