As editor in chief of the Philadelphia Weekly and its daily PhillyNow blog from 2012 through 2015 — and as its art director for most of that time — I was privileged to lead a team of passionate, talented, award-winning journalists and creative professionals dedicated to connecting residents of the nation’s fifth-largest city with the constant ebb and flow of life in their community.

During those four years, my team’s output was awarded such honors as Best Overall Non-Daily Paper, Best Headline Writing and Best Tabloid Page Design by the Society of Professional Journalists; Best Staff Blog by the national Association of Alternative Newsmedia; Best Headline Writing, Best News Presentation and General Excellence in Pennsylvania’s Newspaper of the Year Awards; and Best Special Project and the Distinguished Writing Award in the annual Keystone Press Awards.

In 2015, my work as interim editor and art director of Philadelphia Weekly‘s then-affiliate, the Atlantic City Weekly, won Best Headline WritingBest General Typography and Best Front Page Layout from the New Jersey Press Association.
