Senior Editor, Content & Presentation
Art direct, design and edit for the nation's ninth-largest daily newspaper. I am responsible for driving the content and presentation that makes up the most important page of the Chicago Sun-Times – Page One.
- Content development and coordination – I manage a team of 4 designers, while also collaborating with fellow top editors in the newsroom to develop a page that contains: Emotion, Humor, Attitude and Power of Presentation.
- News Judgment – I continually search through available resources (internet, television, radio, newspapers) to find stories that we may not have and develop them into our own.
- Page development – I select the photo, write the headline and refer copy for Page One that draws readers and maintain's the paper's unique identity.
- Revenue-generating initiatives – To create ad revenue from premium clients, I created the Sun-Times' process for offering commemorative poster inserts and special front-page reprints for events like the 2016 Chicago Cubs Playoffs and World Series win.
