Editor, Assoc Managing
As Associate Managing Editor for Business, I am responsible for the Tribune's coverage of business news in the print edition of the Chicago Tribune and online at chicagotribune.com. We also post business news as it happens at chicagobreakingbusiness.com, our local business blog. Our excellent staff of approximately 25 writers and editors provides readers with the best and most complete coverage of Chicago business news every day!
I became AME/business in 2009, after four years as the business department's deputy editor. For about a decade previously, from 1996-2005, I was a Tribune foreign correspondent, based first in Tokyo and then Beijing. As one of two correspondents in Asia for the Tribune, I wrote from more than 20 countries in the region, from Vietnam to North Korea. In the wake of Sept. 11, I covered the war on terrorism in Afghanistan and Pakistan, including the fighting and search for Osama bin Laden at Tora Bora. Before joining the foreign staff, I was a metro reporter for the Tribune in Chicago. Previously, I contributed to The New York Times as a full-time freelance reporter in the newspaper's Los Angeles bureau, writing about business and national news. I have a journalism degree from Northwestern University.
