My Role

I am the front page designer of the Hartford Courant. I decide how the stories and photos and graphics are going to be arranged on the front page. I decide how big the headlines will be. I make a lot of the graphics — maps, charts, timelines — for the front page.
My Biography

Before I was a front page designer, I was a graphic artist. I made infographics and illustrations for both the print paper and web site. I have a degree in journalism. I grew up on a farm in North Dakota.
