As Art Director for various consumer and trade publicationsin Toronto and New York City, I regularly planned and conceived visual ideas to enhance and strengthen the writer’s story and the overall editorial message conveyed, within the style and look of the magazine. I commissioned award-winning editorial illustrators and photographers for front covers and feature articles, and I oversaw the photo editing, photo research, design and production departments. At Time Inc, I art directed and designed special editorial sections of Money, Rewards of Money, MoneyExtra: America’s Top Places to Live annual custom relocation newsstand guidebook, Money Rankings issues and Money forKids, prototype products. Graphic design challenges included charts, tables, graphs, data, statistical listings and information graphics. I'm also experienced art directing magazines with more diverse advertiser and editorial content: city, news, leisure, business entrepreneurship, personal finance, fashion, and lifestyle categories.
