News, Sports and Features pages

I've been responsible for the art direction, the design and the production of newspapers since 2000. I've designed front pages, all sections of daily newspapers and multiple special print publications in Colorado and Florida for over 20 years. I also designed the three-part investigative series, "Other than Honorable," which received the 2014 Pulitzer Prize in National Reporting.
