A sample of my design pages from my work at newspapers in Texas, California and Washington, D.C.
The Texas Theater was one of the first things I noticed as my Dad and I drove through San Angelo, Texas for the first time. It was January 2003. On a whim, I took a job as a copy editor at the San Angelo Standard-Times. No, I never visited West Texas before.
Eventually, I would get to know the Texas Theater and its many stories. Glen Carr, a former projection specialist and unofficial guardian, would become a great friend.
This special section that I researched and wrote ran on Thanksgiving Day, 2004, the 75th anniversary of the Texas Theater. I was long gone by that point and thanks to the work of Randy McCoach and Bob Tracy and others, this story saw the light of day.
When I left San Angelo, I told Glen I would return to see the re-opening of the Texas Theater. I still look forward to that day.
This 12-page special section from the Riverside Press-Enterprise in 2006 documents the effects of toxic elements coming through the Inland Empire via the rail freight network. I served as lead designer on this project. This section was awarded the first annual “Sunlight Freedom of Information” award, given by the Associated Press News Executives Council of California and the California First Amendment Coalition.
