Since 2000 I have been an editor and print designer at the Chicago Tribune, most recently as art director of our daily arts and entertainment section. A daily newspaper is an intense, deadline-oriented and collaborative environment. I work with reporters, editors, photo editors, graphic artists and other designers to design energetic, clear and smart pages that project our values and mission.
My writing has appeared in the Chicago Tribune, VeloNews, Gapers Block and elsewhere, and I have taught copy editing to graduate students at Northwestern University.
I began blogging on various projects before “blog” was even a word. One such project has been Chicago Bike Racing, which remains the premier source for cycling news and information in the Midwest, and responsible SEO put CBR in the top 5 Google results for "bike racing" nationwide.
I have more than 15 years of experience with SLR cameras. I specialize in sports photography and candid photojournalism.
Bike racing is one of my passions, and much of my life is devoted toward contributing to this community. I am a Cat 2 racer in road and cyclocross and a Level 2 coach.
