What I Do: I lead the print ad–production team, working with sales, finance, and the color center to get every ad-order into the system correctly and every issue out on time. We review each new ad file for errors in size, color, or type of file. After resolving any problems, we lay out the ads.
Interesting Fact About Me: I heard about The Taunton Press and became a charter subscriber to Fine Homebuilding in—yup—1981. I started working here in 1988 when Fine Gardening was launched and have since worked on every print brand—all seven.
What I’m Passionate About: Baking sourdough bread. I’m still perfecting it.
What I Like About Working for Taunton: It is like living in a candy store. All my favorite interests are within my reach every day. Fine Gardening, Threads, Fine Woodworking, Fine Homebuilding, and yes, even old issues of Fine Cooking grace my shelves. I will never toss Fine Cooking issue #132 because of the holiday recipes I have become attached to.
