As Features Editor, I work with reporters to develop story ideas and consult with the design staff on illustration and presentation of those stories to both the print and online audiences. I edit stories, aid in the creation of content such as photo galleries, quizzes and polls and plan future projects. I also serve as Health Editor, coordinating content for both local and national HealthKey audiences.
I have been in journalism all of my life except for a few brief, brief stints in food service and retail. As a reporter I worked a variety of beats including education, government, transportation and business. I quickly realized that what I loved was the diversity and storytelling opportunities available in feature writing and made by journalistic home there. I then found I loved editing just as much, if not more.
Reading...just about anything; music...but not a big fan of country; art...mostly contemporary; design...of everything from bridges to paperclips; science...especially particle physics; food...just don't feed me tripe; high-end shopping and dumpster diving; travel to just about anywhere, big cities, wilderness and modern technology.
