Most recently, I worked as production manager of the Colorado Springs Independent, Colorado Springs Business Journal and Colorado Springs Military Newspaper Group for Colorado Publishing House, where I also helped launch the new Southeast Express community newspaper and website.
Before that, I was digital editor and digital media director for The Pueblo Chieftain for over six years, and served in many roles at Arizona’s East Valley Tribune over my 13 years at the Pulitzer Prize-winning newspaper. I also started and maintain the pop culture blog Nerdvana.
I earned my bachelor’s degree in journalism from Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication. I have taught online media at Cronkite and web design at Pueblo Community College, and am past president of the Southern Colorado Press Club.
