I love editorial design. I fell into a position in a news-
room years ago and was hooked immediately. I have years of experience in consumer and custom publishing, as well as content marketing – creating print and tablet magazines. I love working with smart editors and collab-orating on the best way to tell stories. I’m addicted to that feeling you get when a team hits on a great idea and you all think, “Yes! That’s it.” I am hoping to find freelance opportunities both near and far to feed that addiction as much as possible. Want to know more?
