Managing Editor, InfoWorld

Joined IDG October 2009
Career Path I started as a freelance copy editor at InfoWorld in February 2007 and was hired as a full-time employee about 18 months later. I’ve been managing editor since October 2009.
Primary job responsibilities I keep the trains running on time. That is, I make sure stories post to the site as scheduled or at the best opportunity. If a story is delayed, I’ll find a substitute to fill out our coverage. If a story is fast-tracked, I’ll make sure we have the resources to work on it.
Three things I do in a day’s work
- It’s all about the story, from copyediting and/or content editing to writing and/or pitching in on the headline to wrangling graphics.
- Once the story is ready, it’s time to promote it via our home page, newsletters and social media outlets.
- I keep an eye on our weekly and monthly schedule to see what we can get a jump on and which projects might need late-breaking attention.
What I love most about my job Educating and informing our audience with what I hope is a lively, modern, relatable tone.
Latest accomplishment Work: Guiding a new writer as he takes up our popular Robert X. Cringely blog. Leisure: Crocheted a lovely baby blanket.
Interests outside the office Music, food, travel, the occasional 5K/10K
What others can’t tell just by looking at me I’m a bigger sports fan than most people realize.
