West Coast Editor
Better Homes & Gardens / Meredith Corp.
I was the satellite editor on the West Coast for Better Homes & Gardens, one of the largest magazine brands in the world. I fed the magazine its West Coast content, from fantastic houses and celebrated chefs to landscape designers and architects. I worked well independently, and oversaw a crop of field editors across the West Coast. I found stories, took them through the pitch process, and produced photo shoots and wrote/edited stories on a monthly basis for eight years. I've managed field editors, location scouts, and photo crews in the freelance world and worked alongside some of the best editors and graphic designers in the publishing arena. I specialized in finding great talent, from chefs and celebrities to architects and designers--and great locations, from vineyards to fabulous houses.
